  • Pro-life Movement Increasingly Takes on Assisted Suicide
    of political struggles over assisted suicide In the four states that have held ballot initiatives lately on the issue pro life forces have transformed themselves into opponents of physician assisted suicide In Michigan Roman Catholics and Right to Life of Michigan worked mightily to defeat a ballot initiative last week that would have permitted doctors to engage in assisted suicide For the first time in state history Michigan s seven bishops issued a joint letter that was mailed to all 550 000 Catholic households in the state It urged the faithful to vote no Pro life groups have been lobbying legislatures as well urging lawmakers to enact or stiffen assisted suicide bans These pro life lobbyists also are pursuing laws that would limit the ability of relatives to halt the artificial feeding or life support of patients who cannot make such decisions themselves And in a variety of ways they are trying to combat the growth of managed health care which they rightly regard as a way of stinting on expensive care for vulnerable people who are disabled or old The nation s largest right to life organizations are investing considerable resources to expand this sphere of their work At he National Conference of Catholic Bishops the longtime director of pro life activities Richard Doerflinger now devotes almost all his energy to end of life issues Similarly the National Right to Life Committee has created a department of medical ethics to concentrate on stopping euthanasia In broad terms such groups try to discourage patients from deciding to abandon medical treatment or life support National Right to Life has created a supurb program urging people to sign living wills that direct health care providers to keep them alive by all means possible In addition they fear that when patients become incapacitated their relatives and the nation s health care system are prone to pull the plug too swiftly We are terrified that what is a right to die is going toward a duty to die said Jim Graham executive director of the Texas Right to Life Committee which is now holding workshops proclaiming involuntary euthanasia as a major threat Last year the group persuaded pro life Gov George W Bush R TX to veto a living will statute because it excluded a provision that would have guaranteed that if patients doctors or hospital believed it would be futile to continue their treatment they could be transferred if they or their relatives requested to another health care facility that would promise to sustain them From the perspective of the right to life movement the advent of assisted suicide and other questions about care for the dying represents a grim prophecy come true It was something we predicted in 1973 when the Supreme Court handed down Roe the idea about some lives not being meaningful would influence the way society treats the sick and elderly as well said the Catholic conference s Doerflinger All that has come home to roost now So far
