End-of-Life Decisions

Dear Editor: Thank you for reporting on “A Catholic Look at End of Life Issues,” (Nov. 12). It is a very important and all too avoided subject.

Compassion and Choices (the agency directing the physician-assisted suicide movement) has run a tremendously successful campaign to devalue human life when its truly vulnerable – that is sinful.

Catholic Charities Bereavement Services has done a fine job of using tools, available to a secular public, designed to help people of any religion make informed choices – that is to be commended.

Reporting this story in The Tablet creates a greater awareness of the new war against human life (at the end of life), which provides the Christian community a real opportunity to work together to deliver a message of unity, respect and love.
