If you want to know what Catholics think about contraception, ask the Catholic people—not the bishops. 

Stand with us, the Catholic People, to make sure your voice is heard.

By signing the We the Catholic People pledge, you are committing to being a part of the conversation. You are saying that good Catholics can and do support contraception. Millions of us do. 

98 percent of sexually experienced Catholic women have used a modern contraception method. 

Good Catholics think contraception can be a moral choice.  Don’t let the bishops speak for you. Sign the pledge.

 

The bishops do not speak for us or the millions who stand together in our shared belief that the use of contraception is a moral decision that should be made by individuals in accordance with their conscience.

We are compelled by our religious tradition to work toward justice and equity for all and to create a society in which women and men, young and old, poor and rich are treated with the same dignity and respect and granted the same opportunity.

We trust women and men to make the decisions that are best for them and their families.

Our voices as Catholic people are an important component of policy debates and discussion and should be afforded the same respect.
