Canadian Catholic Bioethics Institute - What's wrong with Euthanasia?

Event Date: 
Tuesday, March 29, 2016 - 7:00pm

Speaker Dr. Moira McQueen has been teaching moral theology at the Faculty of Theology since 1994, and has written and co-authored several articles in bioethics, fundamental ethics and other areas.

Her book Bioethics Matters was published by Novalis in 2008 and the revised edition in 2011. She is interested in the interdisciplinary aspects of theology, law and medicine as they apply in daily life.

Dr. McQueen was appointed Executive Director of the Canadian Catholic Bioethics Institute in July, 2004.

The Institute has a mandate to conduct research and education in bioethics from a Roman Catholic perspective, and pursues bioethical issues in palliative and end of life care, reproductive technologies, stem cell experimentation and regenerative medicine, genetics, mental health and other current areas.

Dr. McQueen is deeply involved in community education through CCBI’s courses in bioethics for parishes, and through training and consultancy sessions with school boards, health care institutions, priests’ seminars, conferences, lectures and media appearances.

Pope Francis appointed Dr. McQueen to the International Theological Commission in September 2014 for a five-year term. She also received a papal appointment as an Auditor to the October 2015 Synod of Bishops on the Family.
