Catholics for Choice is the only organization equipped with 40 years of experience, knowledge and expertise needed to effectively challenge the Catholic hierarchy on issues related to abortion, reproductive healthcare, contraceptive coverage and religious liberty. Through their trainings and skills-building workshops, CFC works to ensure that people around the globe are prepared to advocate for access to safe and affordable reproductive healthcare and abortion services. Their work advancing sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) throughout Central America remains essential. CFC has been able to counter the church hierarchy with necessary resources to establish productive relationships with local advocates, partners and policymakers working to decriminalize abortion and increase access to contraceptives all over Latin America. By employing a two-pronged strategy that emphasizes strengthening partnerships and increasing capacity of grassroots advocates like Catolicas por el Derecho a Decidir in Nicaragua, and working directly with parliamentarian groups such as the Inter-American Parliamentary Group of Population and Development, we believe that CFC can help make substantial progress to advance sexual and reproductive health rights in the region.
