Webinars still open to train people to talk to lawmakers about assisted suicide
Noting that legislation to legalize assisted suicide is coming to Illinois, the Catholic Conference of Illinois is planning training sessions to help people formulate “well-thought, organized, and respectful responses” when talking to lawmakers.
Leading the webinars will be Bob Gilligan, executive director of the Catholic Conference of Illinois, and Dawn Fitzpatrick, senior coordinator of Human Dignity/Solidarity for the Archdiocese of Chicago.
The first one was held Jan. 26, but there is still time to sign up for the two remaining sessions on Monday, Jan. 30; and Thursday, Feb. 2. The webinars, presented via Zoom, are scheduled for 7 p.m.
Not only will Gilligan and Fitzpatrick demonstrate how to communicate with legislators, but they will also help participants understand why such a law should be opposed and effective messages in regard to assisted suicide.
