Euthanasia, clerical abuse on agenda of Canadian bishops’ meeting

Euthanasia and the response to the sexual abuse of Native Americans in residential Catholic institutions during the 20th century are among the items on the agenda at the annual meeting of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops, which began on September 14 at the Nav Canada Centre in Cornwall, Ontario.
“The recent Supreme Court decision to strike down the articles in the Criminal Code that prohibited active euthanasia and assisted suicide is for us a deep cause of worry and concern,” said Archbishop Paul-André Durocher of Gatineau, the president of the bishops’ conference.
“The millennial wisdom of the Church compels us to see in this decision a radical shift that can inflect our society in a direction that disparages old age, disease and disability,” he added. “We will take time to seek together how best to respond to the challenges this decision raises not only for Christians but for all Canadian citizens.”
