Government

The EFC applies biblical principles to life in society, including law and public policy. We show how laws that reflect these principles – such as the sanctity of human life, care for the vulnerable and religious freedom – contribute to the public good.

The EFC often makes submissions on these issues to parliamentary committees and government bodies as well as occasionally to international bodies such as the United Nations.

(See also Outgoing Letters to legislators and cabinet ministers, and Court Cases for legal submissions.)
