TWU presents address on euthanasia and physician assisted suicide

Event: Trinity Western University (ACTS division) is pleased to announce that the Institute for Christian Apologetics will hold its first public seminar of the New Year on Saturday, February 15, 2003.

Topic: 'Living and Dying with Dignity'

Speaker: Mark Pickup

Pickup is one of North America’s leading disability speakers and social commentators. In his latest address, “To be or not to be—the Human Family (a disabled man’s plea),” Pickup comments on North America’s tendency to avoid embracing the incurably ill and the disabled as part of the Human Family. He pleads with North Americans to reject the euthanasia consciousness and so-called ‘Death with Dignity’ in favour of “Life with Dignity.”

"I have heard Mark Pickup share his life story and speak to the issues of living and dying with dignity,” says Paul Chamberlain, Director of the Institute for Christian Apologetics and professor of Apologetics and Ethics at TWU. “No one speaks with greater passion or credibility on this sensitive issue than Mark."

Pickup speaks from a position of experience as he himself lives with chronic progressive multiple sclerosis (MS). It hasn’t slowed him down much, however, as he has addressed policy makers and politicians, legislative and judiciary committees, religious leadership, community groups and universities across North America.
