Interim special

Reform party M.P. Sharon Hayes and St. Jerome’s College philosophy professor Dr. Donald DeMarco are two central speakers at a seminar on reproductive technology and genetic engineering sponsored by the Catholic Women’s League of the Ottawa archdiocese.

The seminar, scheduled for April 22 at St. Augustine’s Church in Ottawa, offers a Catholic perspective on these current social issues.

Other speakers include Deacon Dr. Robert McDonald, a medical physiotherapist, and Russell, Ontario artist Karen Urlocher who will offer a Catholic witness to the issue of reproductive technology,

Pro-life and family groups throughout eastern Ontario are especially welcome.

The items under discussion are especially pertinent in light of a number of pieces of proposed federal legislation going before the government’s health committee.
