New publication: “Before I formed you in the womb ...”

CPCE compiled an orientation aid on the ethical issues associated with reproductive medicine

The Council of the Community of Protestant Churches in Europe (CPCE) has compiled an orientation aid on the ethical issues associated with reproductive medicine.
 

During the last few decades, advances in reproductive medicine and the potential they harbour have awakened great hope and expectations, but at the same time raised fears in our societies and churches. It is not yet foreseeable where these developments will eventually lead. Many Protestant churches have addressed the ethical issues and challenges raised by reproductive medicine in recent years.

The Council of the Community of Protestant Churches in Europe thus felt that the time had come to ascertain the common Protestant stance in this debate. The result is this new orientation aid, which addresses the complex issues surrounding the beginning of life. At the same time, the Council is very aware that the boundaries of what is medically possible will continue to expand. This publication is therefore not the final say on the matter. However, it offers a fundamental and multifaceted point of reference for a common Protestant approach at European level.

 

It is available in English, French and German.

 

A5 format, 176-192 pages (depending on the language), priced at 8 euros per copy + postage (dispatched from Austria). Orders can be placed at: www.leuenberg.eu/publications or: www.cpce-repro-ethics.eu (also available as a PDF download!).
