Vatican Bioethics Crusade

1a

A Vatican bioethics official on Tuesday condemned the death by assisted suicide of American Brittany Maynard, a terminally ill 29-year-old who ended her life over the weekend, as an undignified “absurdity”.

“This woman (took her own life) thinking she would die with dignity, but this is the error,” Monsignor Ignacio Carrasco de Paula, head of the Pontifical Academy for Life, told the Italian news agency Ansa.

“Suicide is not a good thing. It is a bad thing because it is saying no to life and to everything it means with respect to our mission in the world and towards those around us,” the head of the Vatican think tank on life issues said in a report on the Ansa website.

He described assisted suicide as “an absurdity”.

    A Pugger-Fest post election. Like Gramma McConnell sez, “We’re going to turn this country around”, driving us backward? Nothing good can become of this. 😦

    A Dump run lightened my load of sticks and brush clogging my van, plus recycling my water bottles netted me $13.20, productive day.

    External discomfort for me, sinus related and some illness trying to creep in just because it is cold out, sheesh. Makers Mark soothes those riled up sinuses and sends me to McSheepville where I can explore the inner recesses of my mind instead. yawn!
