The Religious Coalition for Abortion Rights (RCAR) was founded in 1973 after the Supreme Court case decision Roe v. Wade. This group was created as an interfaith organization with a pro-choice outlook on abortions. The organization changed its name to Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice in 1994.

The Michigan branch of the RCAR was created in 1975 and worked to influence policy and legislation, as well as to inform members of ongoing changes in Michigan, and across the country, pertaining to abortions and reproductive choice. The Michigan Religious Coalition for Abortion Rights' primary purpose was to preserve reproductive choice as a basic part of religious liberty.
