Support Pro-Choice Clergy Counseling for Women and Families.
Donate to the Rev. Moody Clergy Consultation
The Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice is pleased to announce that
we have established a
fund in honor of Rev. Howard Moody and the Clergy Consultation Service on
Abortion. In the dark days before Roe v. Wade, when many thousands
of women each year faced dangerous back-alley or self-induced abortions, Rev.
Moody and the Clergy Consultation Service provided comfort, hope and access
to doctors who treated women with dignity and respect. As we face renewed
assaults on women’s rights to control their own reproductive lives and
health, as access to abortion services and contraception is continually restricted
and as women who seek these services are stigmatized, Rev. Moody’s courageous
example continues to be an inspiration to clergy, religious leaders and people
of faith who respect women as moral decision-makers.
The Rev. Moody Clergy Consultation Fund will support the programs of the
Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice Clergy for Choice Network, with
a special emphasis on pastoral counseling programs. The Religious Coalition
for Reproductive Choice provides clergy with training in All Options Clergy
Counseling, to develop pastoral skills in counseling women facing unwelcome
or problem pregnancies. In this program, we explore all options that are available:
parenting, adoption, and abortion. In addition, we offer training in Pastoral
Counseling for Reproductive Loss, which teaches clergy how to counsel women
and families dealing with a variety of reproductive losses, including miscarriage,
stillbirth, adoption, infertility, and abortion.
Contributions to the Rev. Moody Clergy Consultation Fund will provide scholarships
for clergy and seminary students to attend these trainings and seed money
for trainings around the country. In addition, contributions will support
conferences to teach clergy to lead All Options and Reproductive Loss trainings,
to develop a cadre of trainees to spread this work as widely as possible.
The Clergy Consultation Service on Abortion’s Statement of Purpose
declared that “it is our pastoral responsibility and religious duty
to give aid and assistance to all women with problem pregnancies." Today
the members of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice Clergy for
Choice Network carry on the work and vision of Rev. Moody and the CCSA. The
Rev. Moody Clergy Consultation Fund will help us keep this vision alive and
continue to provide women facing unwelcome or problem pregnancies or reproductive
losses with unbiased, non-judgmental counseling and support.

We will not sell, rent, trade, or share your email address.
We may send you occasional emails to keep you updated about the activities of RCRC in which we think you may be interested or to send you occasional email appeals. The option to opt out of receiving these emails will always be provided in every electronic correspondence we send you. If you are a monthly donor, you will receive an email approximately one year from your sign-up date asking you to sign up again as a monthly donor (credit card information must be re-verified on a yearly basis). There is a "Comments" section at the bottom of each online donation form where you may indicate if you do not want to receive any emails from us or if you do not want us to share your information with any other organizations.
