Frances Kissling is the President of the Center for Health, Ethics and Social Policy, a Visiting Scholar at the Center for Bioethics University of Pennsylvania, and the former president of Catholics For a Free Choice.

Frances is engaged in thinking, writing and developing programs on values and ethics in several health areas especially international issues in reproductive health including dynamic and progressive workshops in Africa.

Activism comes naturally to Frances. Notwithstanding her sharp differences with the Catholic Church, Kissling has no plans to leave the faith. “I’m so Catholic, I can’t get away from it,” she said in 2007. “How I construct concepts of life, of justice, it all comes out of being Catholic.”
