As Unitarian Universalists, we believe that our bodies are sacred, and that we are each endowed with the twin gifts of agency and conscience. Each of us should have the power to decide what does and doesn’t happen to our bodies at every moment of our lives because consent and bodily autonomy are holy.
In 2023, Unitarian Universalists across North Carolina showed up to fight for our reproductive rights in the face of the monster abortion ban, SB20. UU Justice NC was proud to partner with Pro-Choice NC, Planned Parenthood, SACRED and others in writing postcards and Letters to the Editor, making hundreds of phone calls, and showing up at rallies and lobby days fight for bodily autonomy.
With the passage of SB20, and abortion access significantly reduced in out state (and across the south) we are called to work in deep partnership with the Carolina Abortion Fund and the 14 abortion clinics across our state through our volunteer time, our continued advocacy, and financial contributions.
