CFC promotes sexual and reproductive health and rights and works to ensure that public policies are based on democratic values, not denominational faith positions.
To this end, CFC believes in and works on issues and projects related, but not limited, to:
The right of individuals and couples to decide on when, whether and how they will form families;
Access to the full range of contraceptive choices, safe and legal access to abortion, pre- and post-natal care, adoption and the right to adopt and adequate economic and social support for families and children;
Respect for and recognition of gay, lesbian, bi and transgendered persons and relationships with all legal rights;
Support and respect, including treatment, prevention and especially access to condoms, for people living with HIV/AIDS and those at risk;
Freedom from all forms of intimate violence, including sexual abuse in the family, relationships and the church;
Social and economic justice that ensures that no one is denied sexual or reproductive health services because they cannot afford them;
Equality for and non-discrimination against women in government, civil society and all faith groups;
Scientific and public policies that are determined by evidence-based research, democratic structures and the common good;
The right of faith groups to participate in public policy formation and the responsibility of legislators to legislate without privileging sectarian religious beliefs.
