Statement on Abortion and Reproductive Health

Columbia Friends Meeting statement on abortion in response to FCNL’s request to all member
Quaker Meetings in the US

Columbia Friends Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends attests to both the preciousness
of life, and the fundamental right of all persons to autonomy over their own body, including the
decision to terminate a pregnancy or not, without government, religious or other outside
dictates. This right must be paired with accurate, science-based education; and access to
complete reproductive health care.
