Following popular demand, we are having a second Question and Answer Session which will take place on Tuesday 14 March at 7pm! This will be a Zoom event and the session will include questions (submitted by donors) on:
👩🏻⚕️❤️🩹 Conscience (‘Do healthcare professionals have a right to object to referring for abortion?’ ‘How do you defend conscientious objection in a liberal democracy?’)
🤰🏻🚑 Emergency obstetrics and abortion (‘Is it ever necessary to induce delivery before viability to save the mother’s life?’ ‘Would this be morally the same as abortion?’)
🏥💧 Assisted nutrition and hydration (‘How do we protect patients without capacity from being starved to death?’)
If you would like to attend, please fill in this Google Form!
The expert panel will include:
