With the passage of a bill by the French National Assembly that establishes a “right” to “continuous deep sedation until death,” while defining nutrition and hydration as "treatment" that can be withdrawn, the reaction of the official Catholic news organs are showing a deep rift in the Church over euthanasia.
While activists in France and abroad have condemned the law as euthanasia in everything but name, L’Osservatore Romano, the quasi official newspaper of the Vatican, has given the bill a stamp of approval.
What comes after the pastoral mercy of murder of souls by strangulation?
The pastoral mercy of killing the body, of course.
I hope there's time to get it on the agenda of the synod on the family so we can try to get the victims of corruption the sacred Sacrament of Viaticum before they're murdered.
