US bishops to consider statement on assisted suicide
Catholic World News - June 03, 2011
At their June 15-17 meeting in Seattle, the bishops of the United States will discuss a statement on assisted suicide.
“After years of relative inaction following legalization of physician-assisted suicide in Oregon in 1994, the assisted suicide movement has shown a strong resurgence in activity,” said Cardinal Daniel DiNardo of Galveston-Houston, chairman of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities. “The Church needs to respond in a timely and visible way to this renewed challenge, which will surely be pursued in a number of states in the years to come.”
