Lex Cordis Caritas - The law of the heart is Love

by Bishop Thomas John Paprocki
The recent decision to make assisted suicide legal in California has been denounced as “a great tragedy for human life,” by Cardinal Seán O’Malley, Archbishop of Boston and Chairman of the Committee on Pro-Life Activities of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. In a statement after the recent legislation in California, Cardinal O’Malley said, “Most people taking the lethal drugs do so not because of pain but because they feel they are helpless and a ‘burden’ on others. The state of California in effect is now confirming this judgment. A government that legalizes assisted suicide sends the terrible message Pope Francis has so eloquently warned us against, that there is such a thing as disposable people.”
