Physician-Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia: Theological and Ethical Responses

This conference is the third of a five-part series entitled Dying a Christian Death in the 21st Century: Moral Controversies in Care at the End of Life. The invited speakers will take up the philosophical and theological questions at the core of the current debate over the practice of physician-assisted suicide, including a discussion of the theology of death and a look into the distinction between killing and allowing to die. The conference introduces a variety of perspectives, drawing from physician insight, considerations for persons with disabilities, and Christian arguments for and against the practice of physician-assisted suicide.
