Big Pro-Life Win

Pro-life leaders are hailing a decision by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe to support a resolution banning euthanasia, specifically as regards advance directives and living wills.

This is a fight we can antipiate coming to these shores: Indeed, the fight is on in Massachusetts. I have written before that protecting the elderly is a cause to which all Catholics, from the left or the right, should be willing to sign on to. Whether the assault on the elderly is from misguided euthanasia advocates or from those who wish to slash the social safety net by cutting Medicare, we RCs need to protect the human dignity of the elderly no matter who a=or what the threat.
