Culture
The PCA is committed to the sanctity of human sexual relationships.

Editor's note: In light of recent decisions by other denominations to approve openly homosexual individuals for ministry, to sanction the blessing of same-sex unions, and because of the public debate on legalizing same-sex marriages, it is appropriate to publish the position of the Presbyterian Church in America on these issues. Here is a brief overview of actions of past General Assemblies and summaries of these actions. More

Life Issues
By PCA
The Christian's decision must be informed by biblical principles as well as medical facts.

In light of the discussion and actions revolving around the Terri Schiavo case in Florida, questions have been raised about medical ethics and heroic measures. The 16th General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in America (1988) adopted a study paper on heroic measures that addresses some of the present issues and gives biblical principles to guide us as we face life and death issues. Readers may want to use this paper for discussion in small groups or in a Sunday School class. More




Partial Birth Abortion - Not Necessary
Protection of the life of the mother as an excuse for an abortion is a smoke screen. In my 36 years of pediatric surgery, I have never known of one instance where the child had to be aborted to save the mother's life. If toward the end of the pregnancy complications arise that threaten the mother's health, the doctor will induce labor or perform a Caesarean section. His intention is to save the life of both the mother and the baby. The baby's life is never willfully destroyed because the mother's life is in danger.
