Many citizens legitimately ask, “What’s wrong with assisted suicide?” If this is purely a private matter, then the only people who can be harmed are those who request it. Assisted suicide is not purely a private matter. It affects huge vulnerable populations who will experience new pressures and financial incentives to die.

Fr. Spitzer, a Jesuit priest, philosopher, educator and world-class speaker, will discuss why assisted-suicide is a fundamental justice issue – giving freedoms to one group that impose onerous burdens to die on other groups – the vulnerable, disabled, and the economically and socially marginalized.

Join us on Friday, Sept. 2, from 7-9pm at the John Paul II Pastoral Centre. Registration today!

Robert J. Spitzer, S.J., is a Jesuit priest, philosopher, educator, author, speaker, and frequent TV personality. A retired President of Gonzaga University in Spokane, Fr. Spitzer is President of the Magis Center of Reason and Faith and the Spitzer Center which develops curricula to strengthen culture, faith, and spirit in Catholic as well as non-profit and for-profit organizations.
