CARDINAL O'MALLEY ADDRESS U.S. BISHOPS' MEETING IN BALTIMORECardinal Sean P. O’Malley, the Roman Catholic archbishop of Boston, thanked his fellow bishops and Catholic organizations from across the United States for helping to defeat doctor-assisted suicide on the Massachusetts statewide ballot Nov. 6.
O’Malley, in remarks prepared for delivery in Baltimore Monday at the main annual gathering of American bishops, said the church, along with interfaith allies and help from disabilities groups, medical associations, and hospice groups had stopped a “terrible assault on human life.”
He pointed to the Netherlands, where doctor-assisted suicide is legal, and where a group is now creating mobile teams that will offer euthanasia to patients at home, making lethal drugs more widely available to patients. The United States, O’Malley said, is a long way from that, but only because voters here have drawn a line.
