Q: The Pulse Forum is “pro-life”?

Students who believe in the dignity and value of human life from conception to natural death are invited to attend the Forum. If you haven’t made up your mind on life issues – you’re welcome to come along as well!  The Forum is about providing a platform for students to rationally engage on life issues. Everyone who attends is expected to respect the speakers and their fellow participants.

Q: Where is the Pulse Forum this year?

The  Pulse 2013 Forum is being held at the Ultimo Community Centre, located near the Sydney CBD. It’s just a 10 minute walk from Central Station and the main CBD bus routes.

Q: How can I get to the Pulse Forum?

We strongly advice students to take public transport, to avoid the worries of inner city parking and congestion. If you are coming by train, Ultimo is only a quick walk. If you have any concerns, contact the Pulse team – there are students coming from all over Sydney and NSW, so there could definitely be opportunities to carpool.

Q: What’s actually going to happens at the Pulse Forum?

The Forum schedule is packed full of exciting speakers on abortion, euthanasia, and human rights in Australia. The lunch break and regular coffee breaks will be opportunities to discuss, challenge, and engage with ideas from the Forum with your fellow participants (and hang with a great bunch of people!).

Q: Who is speaking at the 2013 Pulse Forum?

Our main speakers include:

  • Brendan Malone, NZ bioethicist and social commentator, leading sessions on human rights and life issues, the culture of life, and key strategic principles in the pro-life movement;
  • Debbie Garratt from Real Choices Australia, speaking on the current social and medical context of abortion in Australia, including why women have abortions and how can we help them;
  • Paul Russell, the leading Australian advocate against euthanasia, providing the current state of the euthanasia debate, the international situation, and the key points of debate.

Q: When does it start and finish?

The final week of the mid-year holidays. Beginning at 10am on Saturday, July 13, and finishing 4pm. Lunch and coffee breaks provided. Booya!
