The Role of Conscience in Medical Decisions
Does conscience ever clash with professional duties? What do we mean by terms such as 'conscience' and 'conscientious objection'?

Daniel Sulmasy, OFM, MD, PhD of the University of Chicago discussed these issues on August 6, 2009 during the 15th Annual Flanigan Lecture in Kansas City, Missouri.
