I believe that a woman, no matter what her economic circumstances, should have access to safe and dignified reproductive health care. I believe that a woman facing an unintended pregnancy is best suited to make decisions for herself and her family.
The church is not only a Bride -- the church is also an incarnational Body and a royal kingdom Witness -- but when it comes to gender, the beauty of the feminine in communion with the Divine is the only metaphor that Scripture gives us. And for this reason, we ought to love the ecclesia effeminate.
