National Weekend of Prayer for Reproductive Justice
February 26-28, UUWF joined our partner organization The Religious Institute in sponsoring a National Weekend of Prayer for Reproductive Justice, the weekend preceding the oral arguments for the Whole Woman’s Health v. Cole case before the US Supreme Court. The SCOTUS will be deciding the legality of a law passed in Texas which has nearly shut down all of the abortion clinics in that state.
On Wednesday, March 2nd, the United States Supreme Court is hearing oral arguments for the most important abortion case in more than two decades. This case has the potential to make it even more difficult for many in our communities to access safe, legal, and affordable reproductive healthcare.
In preparation for this historic case, the Religious Institute called for a National Weekend of Prayer for Reproductive Justice on the weekend before oral arguments (February 26-28). We hope you joined congregations nationwide to pray for a world where all people have the right to make their own private reproductive decisions and obtain safe, legal, and accessible abortion services.
Pictured are some of the women (many of whom are from Texas) who participated in the National Weekend of Prayer for Reproductive Justice at the SW UU Women’s Conference in Lawton Oklahoma. Among them are UUWF board member Rev. Beth Dana and former UUWF board member Kathy Calhoun, along with several past and present board members of SWUUW.
