Human Life Alliance (HLA) and the Pro-life Healthcare Alliance (PHA) announce the release of a new video magazine Informed: Life is Worth Living.
“This comprehensive video series on end-of-life decisions is the primer people need to navigate today’s healthcare systems,” remarked HLA Executive Director Jo Tolck.
“This DVD is awesome and it could actually be viewed during a meeting, with follow up time to discuss. Understanding the issues covered in the DVD is critical for us personally but also in ministry, outreach and policy development.” -Georgette Forney (Anglicans for Life)
“This is a wonderful resource. I can see it being used in a discussion series in a variety of church settings. I know I’ll distribute the link broadly. Thank you!” -Marie Bowen (Presbyterians Pro-Life)
From understanding living wills to living with a deadly diagnosis or knowing about physician assisted suicide and disabilities, Informed: Life is Worth Living helps people comprehend the complexities of end-of-life topics.
“The vision behind this new series is much like HLA’s groundbreaking magazines and advertising supplements,” commented Tolck. “People need to understand the broad implications of healthcare decisions in the ‘Obamacare’ world.”
The title, Informed, echoes one of HLA’s most popular printed pieces. Tolck explained, “It’s a guide to making critical medical decisions and every family should keep a copy on-hand.”
