Palliative Care: The Catholic Response to Assisted Suicide

Assisted suicide, as well as euthanasia, is strictly forbidden by Catholic teaching. Because the assisted suicide train is now racing down the track of state legislatures, Catholic health care must provide an adequate response for dying patients. Wednesday, November 11, 2015, Gerard Magill, PhD, will be at Sacred Heart Parish to discuss palliative care as the crucial response of Catholic health care to assisted suicide. Palliative and hospice care provide robust alternatives and Catholic health care is now advocating strenuously for these resources across the U.S. This evening is part of the Bon Secours DePaul Medical Center’s Bioethics Lecture Series.

Wednesday, November 11, 2015
7 to 8 p.m. at Sacred Heart Parish in Norfolk, Virginia.
Complimentary snacks and refreshments provided.
