Euthanasia and the living will

All sick people have the right to be treated and never abandoned. They all the right to treat themselves and to be treated in a manner proportional to their state of health. Euthanasia is any action or omission whose nature or intention is to bring about death in order to eliminate pain. This is an offence against the person, an inhumane excuse to be able to do away with a human life because one is tired of seeing that person suffer. People are beings who relate to one another, and by being close, by providing treatment and encouragement, the pain of loneliness can be soothed.

The Pope John XXIII Community family homes welcome in people with serious and extremely severe disabilities, including those in a persistent vegetative state and will serious illnesses offering real family warmth.

Embryo adoption

Those human embryos that have been abandoned and frozen are children in the very earliest stage of their development, imprisoned in liquid nitrogen at a temperature of -196°C. When their parents lose interest in them, the only way of giving them a hope of life is prenatal adoption in which human embryos are thawed and implanted in the womb of a mother ready to welcome them and bring the children up. This is not about in-vitro fertilisation, but rather a practical solution to all those thousands of human lives already created and waiting for someone to allow them to resume their normal course in life.
