What the Church Teaches About End of Life Issues
The Catholic Church teaches that all life, from conception to natural death, is sacred. However, modern medical advances have made end of life issues increasingly difficult to sort out. What is the difference between letting a person die and practicing euthanasia? Can Catholics have “living wills?” How much treatment must be provided to the sick and dying? We have provided pamphlets at both exits of church for an overview of these and other important moral issues surrounding life and death.
