  • BLACK AMERICANS FOR LIFE
    who are otherwise well informed are amazed to find out just what does happen to a growing unborn baby in abortion It s a real shock to learn that the 1973 United States Supreme Court decision legalized abortion throughout the entire nine months of pregnancy Sure Explaining what can happen to an unborn child is part of what BAL is all about But the key word is explaining Because when Black Americans understand what the problem is they respond Hundreds who are part of Black Americans for Lifehave responded as they realized what a big problem this country has on its hands We know that thousands more will answer the challenge as they become better informed Black Americans for Life has made tremedous strides just because of people like you Perhaps the single most important fact we have to continue to impress on our representatives is this The right to life organization known as Black Americans for Life is made up of hundreds of people from coast to coast You one individual member are the life of BAL The life and death issues still to be decided require that even greater numbers of concerned individuals join us If you walk

  • Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod - Euthanasia Statement
    questions related to euthanasia and assisted suicide Those twelve principles are as follows 1 Euthanasia in its proper sense is a synonym for mercy killing which involves suicide and or murder It is therefore contrary to God s Law 2 As Creator God alone knows with certainty whether a disease or an injury is incurable 3 When the God given powers of the body to sustain its own life can no longer function and doctors in their professional judgment conclude that there is no real hope for recovery even with life support instruments a Christian may in good conscience let nature take its course 4 Administering pain killing medications even at the risk of shortening life is permissible since this does not entail the choice of death as either a means or an end 5 It is good ethical procedure for the doctor to request and receive a statement signed by the patient if competent to consent or by the nearest of kin agreeing to the uselessness of further heroic efforts and consenting to termination of treatments 6 Each person no matter how infirm and socially useless he or she may appear to be deserves to be accepted as a being created in the image of God 7 While suffering is an intrusion into life it provides the opportunity for Christian witness and service 8 Often the time prior to death is so wrapped in mystery that no one ought forcibly to interrupt the movement of a man s spirit as it may be communicating through God s Spirit and his Creator and Redeemer by way of responding in trust and inner yearning 9 Death is not merely a physical but a crucial spiritual event for each person 10 Any decision made in this highly complex area and any actions

  • Synod of the Great Lakes - Reformed Church in America - Euthanasia
    people to let God and not suffering determine the agenda of their life and their death A third conviction is that in the community of God s people caring for those who are dying is a burden Christians are willing to share The whole Christian community must provide support for the individual sufferer and the individual caregiver who have determined that going on in the face of suffering is a faithful response to God The Church cannot demand such courage by rejecting assisted suicide without at the same time providing the care that makes it possible to live with suffering Part of the Christian response to the public debate about assisted suicide is to create communities of care which reduce the likelihood people will choose physician assisted suicide One of the most common justifications offered for physician assisted suicide is the stated desire that I never want to become a burden to my family However the care offered by those who love us makes suffering possible to bear A person s willingness to bear his or her suffering is an expression of trust in God It is also an expression of trust that those who love them will care for them even in difficult times A willingness to go on even in the midst of suffering offers those who love them the opportunity to care for them Do these three convictions lead to the conclusion that Christians must never make the choice to take their own lives At the very least these convictions infer that to do so would be morally troublesome Taking one s life appears to be a violation of some fundamental Christian convictions Proponents of physician assisted suicide argue that people care for pets and animals who are in pain by putting them to sleep therefore shouldn

  • National Association of Evangelicals - Euthanasia
    medical staff to withdraw life support systems The National Association of evangelicals believes that in cases where extensive brain injury has occurred and there is clear medical indication that the patient has suffered brain death permanent unconscious state no medical treatment can reverse the process Brain death is not the equivalent of a coma A patient might awaken from a coma but not from brain death Removal of any extraordinary life support system at this time is morally appropri ate and allows the dying process to proceed Under such circum stances appropriate action is best taken where there is guidance from a signed living will or a durable power of attorney for health care Where there is no living will or durable power of attorney for health care the decision to withdraw life support should be made by the family and or closest friends in consultation with a member of the clergy when available and the medical staff NAE acknowledges that the withdrawal of life support systems is an emotional and difficult issue However we believe that medical treatment that serves only to prolong the dying process has little value It is better that the dying process be allowed to continue and the patient permitted to die This is especially true of those who know Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord For as the Apostle Paul said To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord 2 Cor 5 8 Resolution adopted at the 1994 Annual Conference The following denominations and fellowships hold membership in the National Association of Evangelicals Advent Christian General Conference Assemblies of God Baptist General Conference The Brethren Church Ashland Ohio Brethren in Christ Church Christian Missionary Alliance Christian Catholic Church Evangelical Protestant Christian Church of North America Christian Reformed Church in
