What You Can Do

As individuals:

  • Be prepared to apply the biblical principles to your own reproductive issues or to those around you
  • Pray for those who experience infertility
  • Be aware of the options, and the consequences of those options, for overcoming infertility. For example, what if there are embryos left over from IVF procedures?
  • Be prepared to support friends who find out that they are going to have a child with disabilities, or who will face the joys and challenges of a multiple birth.

As a church:

  • Pray for those who experience the pain of infertility. Help them to look to God, rather than rely solely on technology, to help them.
  • Encourage those with infertility problems to consider adopting a “left over” embryo from another couples IVF treatments as an alternative to using ova or sperm from an “anonymous” donor.
  • Be prepared to support people in the congregation that have children with disabilities.

As a citizen:

  • Raise the ethical concerns with embryonic stem cell research. Ask your MP to support adult stem cell research as a viable alternative.
