Assisting health care students and workers to promote a culture of life


“Conscientious Objection in Abortion and Euthanasia for Health Care Students and Workers”.


Recent legislation passed in NSW has made abortion and voluntary assisted dying legal. Health care workers and institutions will be required to facilitate these procedures.

Students and workers, however, have often chosen their course and position from a desire to promote life and not end it. This conference will provide guidance in how to navigate through the university and workplace for those with a conscientious objection to these practices


Topics and Speakers include:

“Respect for conscientious judgment in healthcare: how to determine reasonable scope and limits.”

Dr Bernadette Tobin AO; MA, MEd, PhD.
Director Plunkett Centre for Ethics, St Vincent’s Hospital.


“Conscientious Objection in Australian Law: the rights and obligations of health professionals who uphold the culture of life.”

Anna Walsh, B.Nurs (Hons)., LLB (Hons), LLM, M Bioethics, PhD (Cand).
Lecturer UNDA. Lawyer/Academic.


“How we got to this point and what we need to do to fix it.”

The Hon. Damien Tudehope, BA/LLB, MLC.
NSW Minister for Finance and Employee Relations, and Leader of the Government in the Legislative Council.
