Marriage, Parenthood, Children

» What are the ramifications of same-sex marriage?

This theological-ethical study of the Council of the Protestant Church in Switzerland explains the current discussion on marriage and family life as a church challenge and analyzes the protestant understanding of marriage and family issues on a biblical-theological basis. The study addresses ethical foundations in reproductive medicine, legal aspects and the significance of child welfare. This basic theological-ethical reflection is intended to be a contribution to the reasoned formation of judgment in an important discussion that affects all of society.
