Values and Vision: Is Doctor Assisted Suicide a Right? – A public forum on end of life issues, co-sponsored by the Halifax Shambhala Centre, The Universalist Unitarian Church of Halifax, St. John’s United Church and St. Andrew’s United Church, will be held at St. Andrew’s United Church (Corner of Robie St. and Coburg Rd.) on Friday March 21st at 7pm.  Wanda Morris, Executive Director of Dying with Dignity Canada will be joined by academics, advocates and religious leaders (representing a variety of points of view) for a panel discussion. We invite your input: potential questions for the panelists can be emailed in advance to

Please attend this.  Deacon Larry Worthen will be on the panel. Larry was recently made the executive director of the Christian Medical and Dental Society and he gave a talk at St. Benedict's Church on the conscience rights of doctors. Come out and support him, as the panel is heavily weighted in favour of those who are pushing for legalizing doctor-assisted suicide.
