CWN Editor's Note: Leaders of the Belgian hospitals operated by the Brothers of Charity have been summoned to Rome to explain their decision to continue allowing euthanasia in defiance of a Vatican order. Brother Rene Stockman, the superior general of the religious order—who has denounced the hospitals’ policy—sees the meeting as “an ultimate chance to set themselves in line with the doctrine of the Catholic Church.”

    What is there to explain? They are wrong. They were told to stop and failed. There is no explanation on euthanasia. It is wrong, evil, and against the Church's teaching. By doing this two step you give them a platform. It is also clear the Pope has waning sense of power over these heretic religious groups. Wonder why!
