Amici are organizations representing diverse religious traditions that affirm a pregnant person’s right to decide whether to access abortion. The brief outlines how religious traditions support a pregnant person’s moral authority to access medically necessary and life-saving abortion care and any denial of this care infringes on people’s fundamental right to live their lives consistent with their religious beliefs. Amici emphasize the moral urgency of abortion access for marginalized communities who are disproportionately impacted by denial of abortion care.
