The Sanctity of Life
A three lesson short-term scheme of work to introduce the topic of abortion and euthanasia suitable for GCSE or A-level teaching. I have found this introduction sets the tone really well with students for an in-depth analysis and evaluation of why Christians place such importance on the sanctity of life and how this in turn reflects on their attitudes to abortion and euthanasia. Includes reference to sources of wisdom and authority from Christianity. Start with the lesson on the purpose of life, followed by the value of life and end with the quality of life, which starts to question Christian concepts and gives students the opportunity to contextualise the concept of the sanctity of life.
