Transcript [Sep*. H*l3 A Message to Pope John Paul XX and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops from We The XOomzn of the United States x. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men and women are created equal, and that neither Caw, custom nor religious tenet invented for the convenience of man has the moral authority to deny equal rights and equal opportunities to women anywhere on this pCanet. XX. Women's Rights are Human Rights, and we are claiming our power as women. We are the key to the liberation of the Church from the sinful bonds of sexism. We hold the keys to the kingdom. Women must and will be ordained in alt Churches, all Faiths. XXX. As the world, embarks on Safe Motherhood Campaigns, women will take whatever steps are necessary to protect the lives, the health, and the economic well- being oj themselves and their children. Essential to this task, is access to safe, legal abortion and to effective contraception. No Caws devised by men in government or in the church have ever quelled success]ully the pursuit of these life-saving services. for the Church to continue its dangerous opposition to birth control and abortion is to promote poverty and death for millions of women and children around the worCd. XV. The Church's current crusade to controC lives, to Cimit choices and to divide the community of women from each other cannot succeed in a nation founded on the right of the individual to pursue happiness as she defines it, nurtured by a culture rich in diversity and pluralism. The Church's efforts to enforce compulsory heterosexuallty and compulsory parenthood on everyone but its own clergy are doomed to failure in the Cong run, and destined to cause only pain in the short run. To condemn lesbian and gay sexuality as "intrinsically evil" and "objectively disordered" is to retreat to the Dark Ayes of human history. Women will stand united against such bigotry and ignorance. V. We the Women of the United States are obligated by our history and our traditions to resist tyranny in all its disguises. The words of Elizabeth Cady Stanton are as true today as they were in the last century: "The whole tone of Church teaching in regard to women is, to the last degree, contemptuous and degrading." We are, in fact, bound in spirit and in experience to the maxim espoused by our foremothers, "Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God."
