Assisted Suicide Violates Human Dignity says National Priest Leader
September 2, 2009
Staten Island, NY – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for
Life, commented today on the pending Montana Supreme Court case that could
establish a so called state constitutional right to assisted suicide.
“Assisted suicide is an act that violates the victim’s dignity,” said Fr.
Pavone. “It is a declaration that a person’s life is worthless and devoid of
respect. If the Montana constitution states that the dignity of every human
is inviolable, then there can be no room in that constitution for the
protection of a fabricated ‘right’ that threatens the very existence of the
disabled and medically vulnerable.”
