Last month, Nigel Biggar was the keynote speaker for an event at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. In his lecture, Biggar discussed what it means for religious believers to engage with others on moral debates generally, as well as on specific matters related to medical ethics, such as abortion and euthanasia.

The event, entitled Why Religion Deserves a Place in Secular Medicine, was organized by the Veritas Forum and respondents included the Reverend Dan Hall of the University of Pittsburgh, and Professor Warren Kinghorn of Duke University Medical School. The full text of the lecture is available here.
