End of Life Issues with Rita Marker
November 12 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Patients Rights Council Executive Director, Rita Marker will be the special guest speaker in Stark County at two different locations. On November 11 at 7:00 p.m., she will appear at Little Flower Parish (Varble Hall), 2040 Diamond St NE, Canton, OH and on November 12 at 1:00 p.m. at St. Joan of Arc Church, 4940 Tuscarawas St W.
Author of the critically acclaimed book, Deadly Compassion and nationally known speaker, Rita Marker is also a practicing attorney and former Adjunct Professor of Political Science and Ethics at the University of Steubenville. According to its website, the Patients Rights Council that she leads “is committed to the principle that you have the right to know all the facts about the critical issues of life, death, and assisted suicide. Few issues are as important as the compassionate treatment and care for those who are most vulnerable. Our primary responsibility is to offer understanding and practical support to those who are facing critical situations for themselves or a loved one. Our second responsibility is to provide the public with rational, factual information about the results of doctor-prescribed suicide and euthanasia.”
The public is invited and welcome to attend these speaking engagements to become more informed and to have your questions answered about end of life issues and healthcare decisions. Sponsored in part by the Respect Life Ministry at Little Flower Parish in Canton.
