Infertility in the Life of the Church

Ryan Troglin | January 17, 2017

In this 15-minute interview, Lauren Hansen sits down with doctor and bioethicist Megan Best to discuss infertility and how Scripture shapes our view of it. Dr. Best helps us understand what infertility is, what causes it, and considers how Christians should think about controversial treatments such as IVF and surrogacy.

If you know a friend, family member, or couple in your church dealing with the angst of infertility, watch this video as you consider ways you can enter into their suffering with tenderness, and minister to them—both spiritually and ethically—in their pain. For a better viewing experience turn up your volume, and please excuse the background noise.

For more on this issue, see Dr. Best’s book, Fearfully and Wonderfully Made: Ethics and the Beginning of Human Life.
