Pope Francis Denounces Euthanasia
Pope Francis denounced the right to die movement on Saturday, saying that euthanasia is a sin against God and creation.Amen.
The Latin American pontiff said it was a “false sense of compassion” to consider euthanasia as an act of dignity.[…]
The Catholic Church opposes euthanasia and assisted suicide, teaching that life starts at the moment of conception and should end at the moment of natural death.
The Pope also condemned in vitro fertilization, describing it as “the scientific production of a child” and embryonic stem cell research, which he said amounted to “using human beings as laboratory experiments to presumably save others.”
“This is playing with life,” he said. “Beware, because this is a sin against the creator, against God the creator.”
