To my Christian peeps, who are rightfully pissed and offended that what you believe and stand for has been hijacked by a judgmental, hypocritical, self-serving minority. This priest just dropped the mic. Get out there and take your shit back.

I Am a Priest, and This is Why I’m Pro-Choice by Broderick Greer

“People seeking out reproductive healthcare – not just abortions – aren’t an “issue” or a “question”. They are people with needs, desires, and a right to autonomy and self-determination in their reproductive decisions.”

“And that is where the Church can find its point of entry: in offering people making these decisions every measure of mercy they need to live wise and whole lives. It is the act of looking people in the eye and saying, “I trust you. I love you,” not, “My personal religious convictions on this matter should prevent you from seeking out the affordable, safe health care that you need.” This act leads people of faith and goodwill to seek out ways in which we can support and elevate organizations that offer life-saving reproductive health care and education to people of all ages, races, socio-economic levels, sexual orientations, and gender identities, especially organizations like Planned Parenthood and SisterReach.”
