bariatric surgery
Question from JK on 9/2/2013:

Could you tell me where the Church stands on bariatric surgery? I have struggled with my weight most of my life, and now it is causing me serious health issues. Is bariatric surgery acceptable in the eyes of the Church?

Answer by Judie Brown on 9/23/2013:

Dear JK

Have seen no teaching on bariatric surgery but I do know folks who have not fared well after having the surgery. It seems that somehow this surgery can weaken a person in some ways. Please make sure you get two opinions before making a decision.
