exploring ideas together

Freedom of conscience. It sounds like an abstract concept, but Canadians have recently been confronted with its growing importance. From government mandates to the right to protest and civil disobedience, people are realizing why it's important to protect this fundamental freedom guaranteed by the Canadian Charter.

Healthcare professionals, historically and currently, are on the frontlines of this fight. There is a crisis of conscience in medical communities across Canada and globally that must be understood. Since the landmark Carter decision by the Supreme Court of Canada in 2015, many Canadian medical professionals are pressured into participating in doctor-assisted suicide and euthanasia on pain of losing their ability to practice medicine.

Is it ethical to provide or receive doctor-assisted suicide? What exactly are physicians being asked to do, why do some object, and why does it matter?

The AC Literary Expedition is back to explore these questions and more. Hear from two doctors what is at stake not only for them but for all Canadians. Check out any of the recommended resources below, and join us on Sunday, September 25 for a time of learning, discussion, and asking questions.

You can register for this online event on the Eventbrite page. Space is limited, so register today!
