Unit 6: Policies Regarding Families and Personal Relationships
Marital, personal, and family relationships are an area where policy makers and officials often have to make controversial ethical and legal decisions. Should we allow consenting adults to engage in sexual or marital relationships with whomever they choose? What limits should the government place on these relationships? Whose interests are paramount in family relationships, those of the child or those of the parents and grandparents? What limits should the government place on procreation, contraception, and abortion?
