Session 3  - It’s my body, my choice

If you missed it at St. Mary's Parish in Red Deer, check out the recording of the live webcast below. With special guests Father Eamonn McNerney, a hospital chaplain who shares his personal experience with a family whose loved one requested euthanasia, and Dr. Robert Hauptman, a specialist in pain management who maintains that with modern medical care, no patient should have to suffer intolerable pain. Archbishop Smith explains and illustrates Church teaching around freedom , choice, and personal autonomy -- concepts that are often used to justify assisted suicide and euthanasia.
