 Issues | Ethics | Gender Recognition Bill

The Gender Recognition Bill is concerned with the rights of transsexuals.   It allows a man to become a woman in law, and vice versa.

The legislation allows for a person to alter their sex  on their birth certificate.

It will allow two people who are biologically of the same sex to marry one another because one of them has had operations to modify their body.

It will allow transsexuals to take legal action against Churches and other Christian employers if they believe they have been discriminated against.

 

Valuable resources on this issue can be found on the website of the Christian Institute (see links page).
