Introduction
  • Human sexuality is a very complex issue.
  • We need to be very serious about our sexuality
    for every choice we make there is a consequence.
  • There are many perspectives of human sexuality,
    psychological, social and biological.
  • Even though there are cultural differences in how
    we approach our sexuality, we should always deal
    with our sexuality in the context of life, human
    love and family despite the temptations of the
    modern society we live in.
  • Our sexuality is a gift from God and we should
    always try to maintain the standards of holiness
    which His Word commands.

Ethical Questions
  • How can we balance the inherent right to live
    with individuals right to control their own
    body?
  • How can we determine and effectively implement
    the appropriate purpose of human sexuality?
  • How can we choose between the value of human
    embryos and advancing medical research?
  • How can we define when a human has the right to
    live and who can has the right to make that
    determination?

4
Foundation of Human Sexuality
  • Book of Genesis - God created humans in his
    likeness.
  • Our sexuality is intimately bound with God
    because God chose to make his son, Jesus, a
    sexual being.
  • Our God given sexuality is a core way of relating
    to others.
  • It is a means towards achieving true love.
  • Human sexuality is a gift from God therefore, it
    is something to cherish and use responsibly.

5
Purpose and restrictions of Human Sexuality
  • Sexual intercourse is only permissible between
    married couples.
  • The main purpose of sexuality is procreation.
  • A second is that sexual intercourse is an act of
    unification in spirit between married couples.
  • This entails a deep expression of love to enhance
    the relationship of marriage.
  • Outside of marriage sex is morally wrong.
  • Since human sexualitys main purpose is
    procreation it is morally wrong to interfere with
    its intended purpose.

6
Contraception
  • What are contraceptives?
  • Prevents pregnancy
  • Allows for safer sex
  • What are different birth control methods?

7
Churchs View on Contraception
  • Sexuality is a gift from God.
  • Church opposes contraception and birth control.
  • Sexual relations should occur with the
    responsible purpose of producing babies.
  • Sex must be generative.
  • Therefore, the church opposes same sex and
    abortion because it is not generative.

8
in vitro fertilization
  • What is IVF?
  • What is it used for?
  • Infertility from the bible
  • Sarah
  • Hannah
  • Elizabeth

9
in vitro fertilization
  • What are the church teachings regarding IVF?
  • Why is it immoral?
  • Alternatives to solve the problem
  • LTOT
  • GIFT

10
Cloning
  • Cloning is a process of reproduction without
    sexual intercourse.
  • The nucleus of an animals cell is transferred
    from one animal to another, producing a new
    embryo with the same genetic material.
  • This process has been tried on animals, but
    scientists say that it can be used for human
    cloning.

11
Christian Viewpoint
  • Christians are against cloning.
  • 90 of cloned embryos will be miscarried or
    stillborn.
  • The openness of having a child is lost when
    performed through cloning.
  • There is no room for Gods creativity when a
    human is cloned.
  • Cloning dehumanizes the act of procreation.
  • God made man in His image, but when a human is
    cloned, the faces of God are all the same.

12
Results of Catholic Sexuality
  • Human life has value at conception
  • This dignity and value has to be respected as a
    human being.
  • As a human being the potential baby has
    individual rights and intrinsic value.

Ethical Questions
  • How can we balance the inherent right to live
    with individuals right to control their own
    body?
  • How can we determine and effectively implement
    the appropriate purpose of human sexuality.
  • How can we choose between the value of human
    embryos and advancing medical research?
  • How can we define when a human has the right to
    live and who can has the right to make that
    determination?
