Is It Really Black & White?

In some ethical issues it can be tough to discern the best course of action that will glorify and please God.

The sanctity of life is taken from the Ten Commandments. Life is given by God and should only be taken by God, as a consequence of the Fall. The intent of the sanctity of life is to preserve it whenever possible. That's why abortion, euthanasia, etc. are so horrendously evil.

If in an attempt to create new life while putting that very life and the existing one to sustain and develop that life at greater risk, is it really preserving life?
