“Medical Aid in Dying—The Facts”

Rev. Kevin Bradley, MDiv

Chaplain, Heartland Hospice

Founding member of Interfaith Clergy for End-of-Life Options (ICELO), Compassion & Choices Minnesota

Compassion & Choices is the largest national organization educating the public and working with legislators to make Medical Aid in Dying legal. The mission of ICELO is to promote understanding and acceptance of diverse spiritual beliefs related to end-of-life decisions.

Come to learn what Medical Aid in Dying is and what it is not and how this legislation is working in several states. Both sides use religion to support or oppose this bill. Kevin has testified at a MN Senate committee hearing for the 2016 version of the Death with Dignity bill sponsored by Sen. Chris Eaton. He will bring his passion and expertise to our discussion of this important topic.

This event is open to all UCC authorized ministers who are currently serving in chaplain ministry.

Lunch will be available for purchase in the cafeteria, bag lunches are not allowed in conference rooms by building policy.
