Press Release – For Immediate Release
Washington, D.C. (September 10, 2019) – The Christ Medicus Foundation and The Catholic Information Center will be hosting a panel discussion and reception this Thursday, September 12th at 6pm on the important and time-critical issue of Life, Religious Liberty, and the Survival of Catholic Health Care.
In today’s national health care debate, certain voices are calling for a health care system that would be government controlled and undermine patient freedom in their health care decisions, radically expand abortion across the health care system, and severely limit the right of Catholic medical doctors, other medical professionals, and authentically Catholic hospitals to exercise their God-given religious freedom.
In this panel discussion, the Christ Medicus Foundation and The Catholic Information Center will address the following questions:
- How does Catholic Church teaching inform Catholics and people of goodwill to evaluate healthcare policies?
- How would socialized medicine (federally run healthcare) impact a patient’s right to control their health care?
- Why does religious freedom matter, and what is the connection between religious freedom and other civil rights?
- What can you do to defend religious freedom and protect Christ-centered Catholic healthcare?
The panel discussions will be moderated by EWTN’s Catherine Hadro and will include time for questions. The Christ Medicus Foundation and the Catholic Information Center invite you to join them for this informative and insightful evening.
