Washington, DC – The case of an Oregon man who allegedly shot his ALS-afflicted wife in the head at her request exposes major problems with the philosophy behind assisted suicide, said Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life.
“The so-called ‘right’ to end one’s suffering by ending one’s life is on a collision course with itself,” Fr. Pavone said. “People will claim that restrictions or delays in exercising this ‘right’ only increase their suffering and therefore their right to end it.”
