What is Death with Dignity?
Last edited 12th January 2015

Liz is a wife, a mother of four, and is living with advanced, incurable kidney cancer. She lives in a State in which it is legal for her to end her life by euthanasia - but she won't.

Pope Blasts Abortion, Euthanasia as 'Sins Against God'
Last edited 16th November 2014

Pope Francis has told a group of Catholic doctors that “playing with life” in ways like abortion and euthanasia is sinful, and he stressed that each human life, no matter the condition, is sacred. “We're are living in a time of experimentation with life.

Maybe by now you’ve heard the story of the California woman who shortly after her 29th birthday learned that she had brain cancer. About two months after her initial diagnosis, she learned that it was a very aggressive, incurable cancer and she was given six months to live.
