Busy news week and lots to talk about: The Kevorkian Oath, assisted suicide, open locker rooms, the Little Sisters of the Poor, and a movie review by Stephanie

Lots to talk about on Faith On Trial this week – from same-gender locker rooms to assisted suicide to the Little Sisters of the Poor, AND a movie review, it will be hard to get it all into our allotted 28 minutes … but we’ll give it a try.

Our guest this week is Dr. Richard E. Brown, author of the novel, The Kevorkian Oath, about a futuristic America where euthanasia is required for those who put a strain on the medical delivery system. Dr. Brown is a graduate of the University of Illinois College of Medicine and practices plastic surgery in central Illinois. He has published over fifty articles and chapters in medicinal literature and has served on the board of directors of various national organizations and in 2003 the American Association for hand Surgery named him Clinician of the Year.
The Kevorkian Oath was published last year and can be purchased through the link on the
Dr. Richard Brown
right side of this page. “
It’s a doctor’s duty to “do no harm”, but in a world where healthcare is completely in the hands of the government, meet physicians whose main mission is taking life instead of giving it,” from the back description of the book. This is a cautionary tale and we’ll have the author with us to explain why.
We’ll also have our research associate and movie reviewer, Stephanie Crowley, with a movie review.
Join Deacon Mike Manno and Gina Noll for an interesting and lively discussion of the issues of the day affecting people of faith: Tuesday at 9 a.m. on Iowa Catholic Radio 1150 AM; 88.5 & 94.5 FM and streaming on The program will re-air at 9 p.m.
