Mormon Ethics


Living a clean and pure life is centrally important to members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Official Mormon teachings take positions on a variety of ethical and lifestyle issues, from abortion to tea.


Mormon Views on Abortion

Abortion is not permitted for Mormons except in very specific circumstances. Having or supporting an abortion is grounds for church discipline and possible expulsion. The LDS church does not take a position on whether abortion should be legal.

Word of Wisdom

The "Word of Wisdom" is a revelation given to Joseph Smith in 1833, which provides guidelines on food, drink and tobacco use for members of the Mormon church.
