STEUBENVILLE, OH— How is the modern culture’s so-called “reproductive rights” philosophy affecting religious freedom?
Richard Doerflinger, associate director of pro-life activities at the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops will address this crucial issue on Wednesday, October 24, at 9:00 p.m. in the St. Joseph Center Seminar Room at Franciscan University of Steubenville.
Doerflinger’s lecture is titled “Freedom for Me But Not for Thee: How ‘Reproductive Rights’ Is Threatening Freedom of Religion.”
Doerflinger has testified before the United States Congress, the National Bioethics Advisory Commission, the National Institutes of Health, and the President’s Council on Bioethics on ethical issues involving human embryonic research. He has also contributed to many publications including the Hastings Center Report, the Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal, and the National Catholic Bioethics Quarterly.
Sponsored by the Franciscan University of Steubenville Institute of Bioethics, this event is free and open to the public, with refreshments to follow.
