Modern fertility treatments are not mentioned in the Bible. How should Christians today respond to the issue of infertility?
What is human fertility?
a word for the existence of God
the natural ability of humans to reproduce
a treatment to help a couple conceive a child
What is surrogacy?
the inability of a woman to reproduce
having a child by IVF
when a woman carries the child of other people in her womb
What does the term 'sanctity of life' mean for Christians?
Human life is sacred as it is created by God and should therefore be protected and respected.
No life is more important than any other.
Life can be ended whenever a doctor wishes to end it.
Why do some Christians think scientists are 'playing God' when they create life using modern reproductive technologies?
Only God should decide when a woman has a child, not scientists.
All scientists deny that God exists.
Scientists cannot help a woman to have a child using reproductive technologies.
What is the role of the HFEA (Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority)?
They decide who is allowed to have fertility treatment.
They regulate fertility treatment and research involving embryos.
They help couples who cannot have their own biological child to adopt.
At what point does life begin according to the Roman Catholic Church?
at 14 days
Why do some Christians reject surrogacy?
The birth mother might not want to give up the baby once it is born.
It is a form of adultery because it introduces a third person into the relationship.
It denies the father a role in the child's early life.
