Mother says doctor brought up assisted suicide option as sick daughter was within earshot

Those of us who are convinced that people's lives will be ended due to pressure from others are often told that we are being 'alarmists' and pointing to a problem that 'doesn't exist'. So how can they explain this exchange between a mother and a physician when discussing the best course of treatment for her daughter? "



"His words were 'assisted suicide death was legal in Canada,'" she told CBC. "I was shocked, and said, 'Well, I'm not really interested,' and he told me I was being selfish." (emphasis added)
No... no pressure there to end a life eh? 



The fact is that doctors, just like the rest of humankind are susceptible to the effects of habitual concupiscence. In simple terms, once they have consigned one patient to death, it becomes progressively easier to do it again. This results in a clear and present danger to people who suffer from incurable conditions or who are too weak to resist the assessment of a medical 'professional'.

Sisters of Life

Here is an excellent website for any and all interested in the pro-life cause. The Sisters of Life are a religious order than began in New York City under the authority of Cardinal Jon O'Connor (RIP) in the 1980's. Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join
