Is Life Sacred? Jewish, Christian and Muslim Views on Medical Ethics, Abortion, and End of Life Issues
Wednesday, Dec. 11th: 7:30 - 9:00pm
In the Declaration of Independence, the United States enshrined life as one of the inalienable rights of each citizen. This foundational right is deeply rooted in the conviction common to Jews, Christians, and Muslims that human life is a divine gift and therefore sacred. Each of the three traditions offers distinct perspectives of how this common conviction of the sanctity of life is to be applied in a spiritually and ethically responsible way.
