You can also print our flyer-sized conference poster here and share it with your local community and churches. 

This year's conference theme is “Maternal Health and the Catholic Conscience”. Under the headings of Conviction, Competence, Community and Compassion, a particular focus will be placed on the discrimination befalling practicing Catholic Obstetricians, Gynecologists and Midwives as well as the training of medical students and specialists. 

Among the featured speakers will be Professor Bogdan Chazan, one of the most senior specialists in Warsaw who recently was dismissed from his position as the CEO of the Holy Family Hospital on the grounds of his refusal to abort a baby with lethal congenital anomalies. The Prime Minster of Poland at the time responded in a public statement saying “law comes before faith”. 

Other speakers include two senior midwives who lost their case before the Supreme Court to uphold their right to conscientious objection in the supervision of abortion procedures. All of these colleagues, who responded to a vocation in medicine, are now unemployed.

Understanding the crucial place of faith in practice has never been more important. Register today!
