Life Issues

Life Issues Analysis

The issues surrounding the sanctity of human life are as many and varied as any issue facing the Christian today.  Another term to describe these issues is “bioethics.”  This term was coined more than 30 years ago to describe the process of examining the ethics involved with emerging medical technologies and biological research.

Bioethics is interdisciplinary, bringing together medicine, law, philosophy and public policy and it covers a wide range of topics, including abortion, assisted reproductive technologies, genetic intervention, stem cell research, physician-assisted suicide and end-of-life medical decisions.

Practically speaking, bioethics often touches us where we hurt the most: in illness, fertility, unexpected medical challenges and death.  For Christians, bioethics also includes a search to know what the Bible says about these issues and how God would have us respond.
