“Before I formed you in the womb…”

A Guide to the Ethics of Reproductive Medicine from the Council of the Community of Protestant Churches in Europe (CPCE)

Of hopes and expectations…

The progress of reproductive medicine and its possibilities have raised hopes and expectations as well as concerns in our societies and churches in recent decades. And the outcome of the possible developments cannot be foreseen yet. The Council of the Protestant Churches in Europe believes that the time has come to identify the mutual Protestant reasoning in this discussion.

The Council is aware that the medical technological possibilities will progress further. The Guide is not the final word. But it offers a fundamental and manifold guide for a common Protestant orientation at the European level. It invites and encourages the Member Churches to work further on these questions in their specific contexts.

The Community of Protestant Churches in Europe appreciates the publication of the present guide on the ethics of reproductive medicine. At a time in which we observe a re-nationalisation of discussions and policies this document is a sign of a countermovement: On the very complex issues and ethical questions in reproductive medicine the Protestant churches in Europe – coming from different traditions, cultures, and societal conditions – seek to argue with a common but nuanced European Protestant voice. We are very much looking forward to the coming debates which hopefully will be stimulated by this orientation aid. Michael Bünker
