Event description

Description

Physican assisted dying, abortions, the morning after pill, voluntary sterilization, birth control, LGBT partner rights, and many other basic health choices may not be offered or simply blocked by some health organizations due to their covenants.

A covenant is a contract between an employer and employee that restricts the types of actions the employee can undertake. They are often based on moral principles based on particular religious beliefs. When covenants occur in public health car, they can have implications for the types of service offered to and received by the public.

How far can covenants go? How obliged are employees to follow the covenants? What are the rights that people may loose if they join with, or seek services from, an organization with specific covenants?

The many questions arising from covenants are endless and will be discussed with two panels, each with a panel of presenters followed by panel and audience discussion:

Panel 1: Social and Moral Issues and Covenants in Health Care, 12:00pm to 1:45pm. Panelists are:

  • David Swann
  • Micheal Stingl
  • June Churchill
  • Gary Bauslaugh

Part 2: Legal Issues and Covenants in Health Care, 2:00 pm to 3:45pm. Panelists are:

  • Janet Keeping
  • Linda McKay-Panos
  • Olivier Fauldauer

Thanks to the Alberta Civil Liberties Research Centre for co-hosting this event.
