"The Board for Social Responsibility inaugurates, from time to time, serious studies of difficult social questions. The present study, on the medical termination of pregnancy, takes its place in a series which has included `Ought Suicide to be a Crime ?' (1959), `Artificial Insemination by Donor' (1960), `Sterilization : An Ethical Enquiry' (1962), and `Decisions about Life and Death' (1965). .... Like all the studies in this series, the Report carries with it no authority beyond that of the group which has created it. This authority is indeed weighty enough in itself, but it would become less so if it were presented as already carrying some ecclesiastical authority, when it is intended to help Christians and others to think rightly about an extremely difficult subject". -- Foreword.

Report of the Group set up by the Board for Social Responsibility and chaired by John Habgood, Archbishop of York
This report "is the Board for Social Responsibility's response to the two hundred and fifty replies it received to its earlier consultative document 'Goals for Our Future Society'. .... This study seeks to identify core values which have to be preserved, but which still permit a variety of social programmes and ways of life. It finds these core values in the idea of 'persons in community'. Persons are valuable in themselves, but only truly 'become themselves' in relationship with others. But who generates our social values and how are these communicated ? [This report] examines the role of family, education, the media, political parties and the churches. It shows that the interplay between different people and the values they hold is a complex one. It is the task of all the social institutions and especially the churches to practise continual self-examination and invite challenge from outside when deciding what goals are needed for the future of our changing society". -- back cover.

Report of a working party of the Board for Social Responsibility, chaired by the Rt. Rev. John Austin Baker, Bishop of Salisbury, with the following terms of reference: "(i) To study the implications for Christian discipleship of the acceptance by the major military powers of a role for thermonuclear weapons in their strategy; (ii) To consider the bearing of this on the adequacy of past Christian teaching and ethical analysis regarding the conduct of war; (iii) To advise the Board on ways in which the members of the Churches can be helped to participate more effectively in public debate on these issues; and (iv) from time to time to prepare for publication discussion papers on the matters under consideration. ... At an early stage we asked the Board to relieve us of the responsibility of meeting the requirements of the third and fourth of our terms of reference, believing that they would divert our attention from our principal task". -- Intro., pp. [vii]-viii.

As members of the Synod know, it is strictly the Board's report which is before us, with the paper-back as an appendix to it, but it is, of course, open to members to refer to both documents in our debate". -- p. 3.

In 1975 and 1980 the Board for Social Responsibility, one of the Synod's advisory committees, decided to assist members by producing for debate a document which would introduce new members to the matters and presuppositions with which the Board works. In 1975 it produced a survey of the major issues, at home and abroad which were likely to be of concern to the Church in the ensuing five years. In 1980, being aware of increasing public interest in the reasons for the Church's engagement in public affairs it asked its Secretary, Mr. G.S. Ecclestone, to write a reflective survey on the Church of England's current involvements in social and political affairs. The survey was duly produced and debated in the Synod in November 1980". -- Preface.

"The Board is grateful ... to the members of a small committee who have prepared this pamphlet on some of the ethical problems raised by new medical techniques of resuscitation and for keeping people alive." -- Foreword.
"[T]he resources of knowledge, apparatus and skill which modern medicine can organize to combat death are now so formidable that they raise forcibly the question of the ethics of their use. .... The place which euthanasia took in the discussion of medical ethics a generation ago is now taken by this question, of 'striving officiously to keep alive'. Granted that the doctor and nurse are dedicated primarily to the health of the body and the preservation of life, granted further the resources which modern science and technology give them for attaining these ends: how far are they bound to go in their use of these resources ? at what moment, if any, may they give up and strive no further ? at what point may the patient be 'allowed' to die ? at what point, in fact, can he be pronounced dead ? This it to present the question crudely; the presentation will be refined as the discussion proceeds: but it is enough to state what this pamphlet is about". -- p. 7-8.

"In view of the growing opinion, among doctors, magistrates, Members of Parliament, and others, that criminal proceedings were inappropriate against those who attempt unsuccessfully to commit suicide, I asked the Church Assembly Board for Social Responsibility, in March 1958, to examine the question on my behalf. .... The Committee has examined these questions very thoroughly, and I have asked for its report to be published as a contribution to the discussion of the problem of suicide in general. The authority attaching to the Recommendations is that of its signatories only, but I am sure that the report will be very valuable as a basis for discussion". -- Foreword.
Contents: Acknowledgements -- Foreword By the Lord Archbishop of Canterbury / Geoffrey Cantuar i.e. Fisher -- Table of Contents -- Introduction -- I: The Law of Suicide and Attempted Suicide -- II: Psychological Factors Involved in Suicide and Attempted Suicide -- III: Suicide: A Moral and Religious Assessment -- Recommendations -- Appendix A: The Liability of Secondary Parties to Suicide -- Appendix B: Coroners' Verdicts and Riders -- Appendix C: Suicide in the Christian Tradition -- Appendix D: A Note on some other Religious Views -- Appendix E: A Form of Service for use when The Prayer Book Service may not be Used.
"The following are our recommendations: -- 1. That attempted suicide should cease to be a crime .... 3. That there should be an alternative Burial Service for use in certain cases of suicide ... 4. That the needs of those tempted to commit suicide and of those who actually attempt it be specially commended to the pastoral concern of the clergy, and that the clergy be offered more help in understanding this part of their pastoral duty". -- Recommendations, p. 34-35.
