Companion Robots

We affirm that humans were made by God as relational beings, to image his trinitarian character, and that we were made to serve and love others. It is in giving ourselves away in love that we find ourselves.

However, ‘companion robots’ are set to be used in care for the elderly, child-raising and as sexual partners.

Therefore, we call upon parents to resist outsourcing childcare in these ways, for human employees to be the object of positive discrimination in organisations, and for workers in robotics to prioritise the common good of societies over cost-saving
