Life

Abortion

In any pregnancy, both the woman and preborn baby have inherent value and dignity, by virtue of being made in the image of God. CARE is passionately pro-woman and pro-life: we advocate for both lives in a pregnancy to be protected and for a society where women are genuinely supported.

We believe there is a better way than abortion – a way that truly supports women in unplanned pregnancies, defends those who are vulnerable and have no voice, and is life-giving to preborn babies. For the last 40 years, we have strived to tell that story and uphold the value of life in our society.

Together we can work for a culture where both women and babies flourish – where all life is valued from conception and women are protected from the harm of abortion.

Assisted Suicide​

All life has intrinsic value and dignity – regardless of its condition. We recognise how immensely difficult it is to suffer or to see a loved one enduring pain, but, as Christians, we are called to protect those who are vulnerable and assist people to live – not to commit suicide. CARE therefore strongly opposes a change to the law on assisted suicide in the UK, and we work to support truly compassionate approaches to care at the end of life being articulated in our parliaments and assemblies.

We want to see a society that truly upholds the dignity of every life and where laws protect those who are vulnerable – particularly those who would feel pressure to end their lives for fear of being a burden on others.

Together we can fight against attempts to change the law on assisted suicide, ensuring that vulnerable people are protected. We can advocate for excellent palliative care, so that those at the end of their lives have healthcare that focuses on relieving and preventing suffering.

AI/Technology/Robotics​

Into creation God built every technological possibility that could ever be devised. The robotics and Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) of today are the most recent tools. CARE is exploring the theological, social and practical implications of advances in artificial intelligence and robotics.

Our vision is to equip the church to confidently think through the remarkable developments in robotics and AI.

Together we can take responsibiliy for keeping our eyes focused on the importance of humans taking care of humans, whatever wonderful machines we use in the process.
