Who We Are

Catholics in Political Life: Challenges to Faith in Democracy is a project of Catholics for a Free Choice (CFFC), an independent not-for-profit organization engaged in research, policy analysis, education, and advocacy on issues of gender equality and reproductive health.

Catholics in Political Life provides information to policymakers and the media interested in unraveling the arguments surrounding the US bishops’ and conservative Catholic attacks on prochoice lawmakers that will aid in developing authoritative statements on the “prochoice and Catholic” issue.

Catholics in Political Life informs prochoice Catholic voters of the freedom of conscience and the ethical foundation of being prochoice and Catholic.

The information you will find on this web site is designed to:

  • Dispel the myth that there is a monolithic “Catholic vote” and ill ustrate the diversity of today’s American Catholic
  • Reveal insights into the motivations of Catholic voters as they consider the choices in the 2004 presidential campaign
  • Analyze how Catholics respond to the role of the Catholic hierarchy in elections
  • Eliminate misinterpretations of Catholic theology and preserve the legitimacy of the prochoice Catholic position
