Hot topic issues of life and death ethics - stem cell research, the death penalty - are not included in the mandate of the CRCNA's social justice work, which focuses mostly on a small set of justice issues that relate to root causes of poverty and hunger. However, because justice issues of life and death are, rightly so, of great importance to the CRC and broader church community, we have provided a few links here that we thought might be valuable resources.
[Based on interest from churches, mandates from Synod, and current events, we focus on a select number of active issues. While this is not one of our active issues, feel free to browse the resources and information on this page. As need arises, we’ll update this page with new information and resources.]
Many churches have groups that work on life issues; sometimes the social justice or social action committee will take on these issues. Talk to your social action committee or church leadership to see what opportunities are available in your church or community.
