Vatican newspaper runs article supporting France’s ‘stealth euthanasia’ bill

ROME, March 27, 2015 ( – 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a “right” to “continuous deep sedation until death,” while defining nutrition and hydration as “treatment” that can be withdrawn, the reaction of the official Catholic news organs are showing a deep rift in the Church over euthanasia.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. The French National Assembly approved the measure 436 to 34 on March 17 and is expected to be passed in the Senate by the summer.

    Life is cheap in the growing socialist world of the West. Take the example of someone attacking and removing the unborn baby from a woman in the states. The attacker won’t be charged with murder because of course the child is unborn. The mainline churches have embraced the life is cheap mantra, abandoning Christian principles.

      Women consider their convenience of more value than the life they are taking. This principle is called ‘opportunism’. Opportunism is the conscious policy and practice of taking selfish advantage of circumstances – with little regard for principles or for what the consequences are for others.

    There was a time when the catholic church used to be catholic. Not anymore in post Vatican II. They should be promoting hospice care not ‘euthanasia’.

    “Progressives”, “Warmists”, “Envirocultists”, “Genocidists”.
    All just labels for the same type of termites that slowly worm their way to the top today in all targeted organizations.

      “.. same type of termites that slowly worm their way to the top today in all targeted organizations” No wonder hospitals can be political and poisonous places to work in. Imagine how that kind of environment affects patients.
