What is C4RH



Catholics for Reproductive Health (C4RH) is a faith-based advocacy group that endeavors to bring Catholics into full harmony with their faith and their right to sexual and reproductive health. C4RH believes that the Church is composed of diverse people united in faith and universal values that promote love, peace and compassion, towards quality and dignity of human life and integrity of creation.

The members remain loyal to the church but continue advocating for and providing RH education and services to those who truly need them, especially the poor and marginalized.  C4RH upholds the primacy of conscience and regards this as one of God's greatest gifts which we should use responsibly guided by our Catholic teachings on social justice.
