ELCA releases draft statement on genetics
The ELCA through its Church and Society program unit has released its "Draft Social Statement on Genetics." The draft statement was developed by the Task Force on Genetics.
Members and congregations of the ELCA are invited to study, discuss and comment on the draft. A response form is provided with the draft statement, and various synods will hold hearings about the draft statement.
The proposed social statement is currently scheduled to be considered by the 2011 Churchwide Assembly.
