Abortion Isn’t the Only Reproductive Issue for Christians to Care About

I have a post on Think Christian about how the Christian preoccupation with abortion has limited and skewed our ability to respond effectively to new reproductive technologies. From my post:

Forty years after Roe v. Wade, abortion remains a dividing line in the culture wars and a central sociopolitical issue for many Christians. Unfortunately, decades of divisive, oversimplified debate around abortion have left Christians ill-equipped to engage in effective discourse and empathetic counsel around technologies that offer parents the promise of healthy biological children. Christians too often fall back on well-worn abortion arguments, around the appropriate limits on freedom of choice and the moral status of embryos, for example, when they are responding to technologies such as IVF and pre-embryonic genetic screening.

Head over to Think Christian to read the rest. If you have any comments, please leave them there instead of here, as the Think Christian editors are interested in reader feedback.
