Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice at the Democratic National Convention



WASHINGTON, Aug. 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- RCRC -- the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice -- will hold two events at the Democratic National Convention to highlight abortion and other reproductive rights issues in the campaign. RCRC's president, The Reverend Dr. Carlton W. Veazey, will speak at the events and is also available for media interviews. RCRC is the national coalition of religious denominations and agencies that are pro-choice, including the United Methodist Church, the Episcopal Church, Presbyterian Church (USA), United Church of Christ, Unitarian Universalists, Catholics for Choice and the Reform, Conservative and Reconstructionist movements of Judaism.



Reverend Veazey will discuss how religion shapes candidates' views on access to abortion, comprehensive sexuality education, and family planning. "The press and some politicians present the public with a misleading view: either religious and pro-life OR secular and pro-choice. But the positions of both Senator Obama and Senator McCain are more complex than that," said Reverend Veazey.



The RCRC events are:
