Christian Medical Fellowship promotes a positive alternative to Dr Death

Earlier this week I wrote about Dr Philip Nitschke's talk in London and his shameless promotion of suicide and assisted suicide around the UK.

I have now been informed that an alternative event has been organised in York as a positive response. I am glad to pass on the details of it.
CMF North Yorkshire is pleased to be co-hosting An Evening with Dr John Patrick (pictured) in York on Wednesday 23rd November at Clifton Parish Church from 7.30 pm. John will be speaking on A Good Death: Physician Assisted Suicide and End of Life Decisions. This accessible location has ample car parking and cake & refreshments will be available.
The event has been organised as a positive response to the 21st November York visit of Exit International’s Dr Philip Nitschke, known as ‘Dr Death’ for his suicide promotion seminars.
John Patrick is a good friend of CMF, having spoken at many events – local, national and international. His wise and insightful analysis of the moral issues in the end-of-life debate are relevant to both healthcare professionals and patients, Christians and non-Christians alike.
The event is also being promoted to York churches through One Voice York. Please do pass on details to others who you feel may be interested.
