The Christian BioWiki is intended to serve as a comprehensive online guide to the official statements and positions on bioethical issues from wide spectrum of denominations and movements that self-identify within the Christian Church throughout the world.
Inclusion of a particular denomination, movement, institution, or organization within the Christian BioWiki is neither an evaluation of the orthodoxy of the respective entity nor an endorsement of the entity's bioethical positions by the Center.
We focus initially on those denominations and movements within the Christian church that have actively sought to develop a wide spectrum of bioethical positions.
We have chosen only to include formal positions and official statements that publicly state a particular denomination or movement's engagement with a bioethical issue. As a result the Christian BioWiki does not at this time display information on pending documents or statements from key leaders within a given denomination or movement unless they formally speak on behalf of their respective denomination or movement.
We hope to expand the topics, denominations, and movements covered by the Christian BioWiki in the future. Contributors are invited to contact us with your suggestions.
Our goal is that the Christian BioWiki will present information in an objective manner to foster increased awareness of how various ecclesial traditions and Christian organizations/movements are responding to the pressing bioethical issues of our day. The Christian BioWiki is not a forum for debate on the merits of these positions or statements. For more information on the bioethical positions of The Center for Bioethics & Human Dignity, please visit our main website at cbhd.org.
