Calendar of Events for April
Death with Dignity
On Sat., April 1st, 2 - 4pm
Christ Lutheran Church, 12570 Clarksville Pike/MD 108 (just south of Guilford Road near Rte. 32) in Clarksville, MD 21029 / 301-854-2100

For the third year in a row, “Death with Dignity” bills to legalize physician-assisted suicide (PAS) were considered by the Maryland General Assembly. So far, these efforts have been unsuccessful, but even people who see the reason in such laws can take comfort in knowing there are more rationale and ethical alternatives to PAS.
On Sat., April 1st, 2 - 4pm, Christ Lutheran Church will be hosting a free educational outreach presentation for the community that will focus not only on the alternatives to PAS and the Christian perspective, but also the non-spiritual “rational” response to the narrative that PAS is a compassionate option and individual choice. Faith-based arguments alone are unlikely to sway secular-minded supporters of PAS, including politicians and national organizations that push for state-by state legalization. Visiting presenter Rev. Joel Gaertner testified last year as an expert witness before the Minnesota state legislature when they were considering legalization of PAS. His work with the developmentally disabled and those at the end of life has given him valuable insight into how PAS puts the disabled, in particular, at risk.
Our church is located at 12570 Clarksville Pike/MD 108 (just south of Guilford Road near Rte. 32) in Clarksville, MD 21029. For more information about our speaker and program, please visit our website.
