“Matters of Life and Death – human dilemmas in the light of the Christian faith” Tuesday 17th September at Lindisfarne House, 4 Barbourne Terrace, Worcester, WR1 3JS
A video presentation by Professor John Wyatt, giving an overview of the central ethical dilemmas raised by modern biotechnology and medicine, from a practising Christian’s perspective. This is not just a matter for academic debate, as these dilemmas touch us at the most intimate, painful and vulnerable parts of our lives. John Wyatt brings us a view from the coal face. This will be followed by questions and discussion, facilitated by Dr. Robbyn Procter, who works in our local NHS trust. John Wyatt is Professor of Ethics and Perinatology at University College London, has wide experience in research and teaching on ethical issues raised by modern medical practice, and is the author of “Matters of Life and Death – human dilemmas in the light of the Christian faith”, and “Dying Well”. Doors open at 7.30pm, when refreshments will be served – coffee and cake – and the event begins at 8pm.
