Under current canon law, any person suffering from permanent impotence is enjoined from marrying in church – which for Roman Catholics actually is the only marriage both valid and desirable. However, this legislation contradicts other national and international law such as the Swiss Federal Constitution and the UN Convention on Disability. Sabine`s aim and intention of her PhD thesis is to discuss and develop possible solutions to solve this problem.
