The topics and speakers are:

  • Why should Christians be interested in ethics in Medicine? (Andrew Cole)
  • Ethical issues at the beginning of life (Megan Best)
  • Medical research involving children (Patrina Caldwell)

  • Victorian abortion legislation—where does conscientious objection fit in? (Mel Cusi)

There will also be a panel consisting of the day’s speakers when participants can ask any questions to do with bioethics.

The costs (including morning tea and lunch) are:

  • $40 for full-time students and pensioners
  • $60 for CASE associates
  • $70 for everyone else

The conference will run from 8.30am-4pm and will be held at New College in Sydney (UNSW). You can download the conference brochure and registration form from our website. Registrations close on Monday 9th March.
