Assisted Suicide- Are we for life, or for death?

"Today, more than ever, each of us, and we as an entire community of faith, must ask one key question: Are we for life, or for death? We must engage our culture and help them to see that choosing death is never a solution. Death will come to us all, but not by choice. Many of us have had the experience of sitting with dying loved ones, walking with them toward death in the same faith with which they walked through life.  This can be a very moving experience, and sometimes an experience that changes us in profound ways. There is something deeply profound in journeying with a terminally ill person as they wait to be called home by our loving Shepherd. We suffer with them and walk with them and often find, to our surprise, that they continue to teach us and minister to us at this moment!"
