Word of Life
“The sufferings caused by chronic or terminal illness … cry out for our
compassion, a word whose root meaning is to ‘suffer with’ another person. True
compassion alleviates suffering while maintaining solidarity with those who suffer.
It does not put lethal drugs in their hands and abandon them.”
USCCB, “To Live Each Day with Dignity: A Statement on Assisted Suicide,”
