Abortion is interpreted in many different ways by various people. Every religion has their own views on the concept of abortion. For example, in Christianity abortion is considered a bad omen, and is not accepted by God. Many people believe that all Christians are pro-life, which isn’t true. There are among several Christians, as well as churches out there, who are pro-choice.
Christianity is faced with abortion because God doesn't make mistakes, but humans do. Other religions face the challenges of wanting to step out of their culture and seek the lord. Christians are also faced with many questions on how we know if God is real or not. Lastly, Christians would say that Christianity is not a religion, but a relationship and every non believer/belief believe that it is a religion. This movie takes the viewers through many challenges that young Christians face in society.
Outline the ways in which religious beliefs can be used to clarify dilemmas in sexual ethics. Many issues arise with sexual ethics when religious beliefs- particularly roman catholic- are considered. The largest and most noticeable dilemma is perhaps the contrast of modern, social beliefs and the teachings of religion, one disagreement present is the acceptance of homosexuality. Current law is being questioned over the legality of homosexual marriage whilst the Catholic bible and church strongly state otherwise. However, dilemmas in sexual ethics are not only approached through religion, for instance, in ancient Greece both Pythagoras and Stoics believed that the soul was imprisoned in the body and can only be released through the disregarding of the base pleasure, sex.
“Ron Snider, president of the Evangelicals for Social Action and Professor at Palmer Seminary claims that repealing the Defense of Marriage Act (Doma) and legalizing gay marriage threatens religious freedom because religious organizations will be pressured to abandon their religious beliefs and accept or condone same-sex marriage” (Sider, Ron). This could mean that people will begin to interpret their own religious beliefs and apply them to their lives according. Most religious institutions believe that they will be sanctioned on what they can say about sexuality and marriage if this law is approved. However; when dealing with religious belief, it is up to the gay couple to decide what they want to believe and how to apply his or her beliefs to their current situation. Each person will have to answer to God in their own way.
Everyone has different opinions on abortion. The controversy about abortion has transcended from the religious belief to the medical aspect and into the political arena. Abortion has been a sensitive issue that has been around for a very long time. Abortion can be pro choice or anti choice, but whatever the decision is it should be based on the women’s decision not the government. Abortion has been documented since the biblical times.
They also believe that genetic modification is almost like playing Gods role, which is seen as disrespectful to God. They also believe that there are some faults with the world and people because the world can’t be perfect as only heaven is perfect, so trying to play God role. They also believe that embryo research is just like abortion and because they don’t believe in abortion they will not allow genetic research! Some Muslims also believe that scientists that try to make life from the stem-cells is playing God which is something that is serious and can’t be forgiven for a Muslim to do it
It is also because the words express the deeply held views of a wide swath of conservative Christianity. Buchanan’s speech epitomizes the Religious Right’s general view of the “culture war”—as a “religious war”3 that manifests itself on many “cultural” fronts, most urgently abortion, homosexuality (especially, now, marriage equality), education privatization, and curriculum content of the public schools. So the culture war is not simply conflict over abortion or gay marriage. It is a one sided war of aggression against the civil rights advances of women and minorities and the rights of individual conscience that we generally discuss under the rubric of religious pluralism and of separation of church and state. For these political aggressors, war is not merely a metaphor or the equivalent of a sports analogy.
It has come to the attention of many Americans as of late that their right to religious freedom is supposedly being placed into jeopardy. Many people insist that the United States was established on the principles of liberty to practice religion as one pleases, and yet others protest that this nation’s critical founding documents are based on Christian beliefs. Each position has valid contentions, although there are several relatively obvious discrepancies in the argument of total religious independence. However, to accurately understand this quandary of religious dispute, one must look back to the Pilgrims that first landed on North American soil, and get into the minds of the nation’s founders. The men and women who first came to America
In healthcare medical refusal of treatment causes clashes between patient and medical team. Religious belief plays a major role in the refusal of medical treatment. The refusal of care is usually done to religious belief and that is because many religious groups see traditional medicine as complimentary action to prayer and faith. Sometimes parents even choose the plan of care for their children based on their faith. However, there is always conflict when it comes to certain medical procedures or
Though there are faults with both sides, everybody has their own reasons for supporting or not supporting artificial insemination. The reasons a person would have for opposing artificial insemination could be a number of different things. The most obvious of these reasons would be related to religion. Many churches teach their followers that “it is morally bad for a couple to generate human life by inseminating the wife with sperm provided by a man who is not her husband or by inseminating a woman other than the wife with sperm from the husband…(May, PhD).” This is because it is being done outside of the
