The conversation about euthanasia and end-of-life care is fraught with medical, moral, and, for Christians, theological complexity. (For example, what is the difference between killing and letting die?) Currently, the current Victorian Government discussions of the issue are paving the way for significant changes. This event run by the University of Divinity's Centre for Religion and Social Policy features Peter Singer (world famous utilitarian philosopher) and Margaret Somerville (from Notre Dame and McGill Universities).
