At a meeting of their governing convention, the Episcopal Church declares its "unequivocal opposition" to legal restrictions on women's ability to obtain an abortion. At the same time, though, the church condemns "abortion for convenience" or as a means for birth control.

The Episcopal governing convention says that it rejects any federal or state legislation that would "abridge or deny the right of individuals" to make autonomous, "informed decisions" about abortion and reproduction."
