Response to the June 29, 1992 United States Supreme Court Decision Upholding Pennsylvania's Constraints on Women's Reproductive Freedom 1992 Resolution of Immediate Witness

WHEREAS we, the General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations, have on several occasions stated our strong support of women's privacy and rights to choose concerning their reproductive options, and in response to the June 29, 1992 decision of the Supreme Court of the United States which upholds constraints upon women's reproductive freedom and privacy contained in Pennsylvania laws; therefore

WE REAFFIRM our continuing support for women's reproductive freedom; and

WE DECRY the continuing erosion of such freedom as represented in the laws of Pennsylvania and of other states; and

WE CALL upon the United States Congress to enact legislation guaranteeing women's reproductive rights and privacy; and

WE CONDEMN all violence against caregivers for women facing problem pregnancies as represented by bombings, arson, physical assault, and harassment which continue in both Canada and the United States; and

WE DEMAND the full support of our law and justice agencies in controlling such violence.
