Religion, Ethics, and Dying

Medical technology can complicate the dying process, especially when combined with challenging religious beliefs and ethics concerns.  We're joined today by two Catholic and Jewish scholars as we discuss controversies and perspectives around withdrawing life sustaining treatment, palliative care measures, assisted suicide, and the criteria of death for transplantation of organs and tissues.

Scheduled Guests:

Dr. Gerard Magill -
 Vernon F. Gallagher Chair for the Integration of Science, Theology, Philosophy, and Law for the Center for Healthcare Ethics at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 

Dr. Jonathan Crane - Raymond F. Schinazi Junior Scholar of Bioethics and Jewish Thought at Emory University’s Center for Ethics in Atlanta, Georgia. 

Alex Garvey - Vice President of Mission and Ethics for Bon Secours Maryview Medical Center
