Words of Relevance: Sean Cardinal O'Malley on Abortion & Euthanasia

Relevance can work in both directions.  Yesterday's post on Hippocrates had relevance to what is happening today in the practice of medicine.  Today's post has relevance not only to the words of Hippocrates from 2500 years ago, but also to the wording of the current poor excuse for the Hippocratic Oath.  

Sean Cardinal O'Malley, Archbishop of Boston, and the most courageous of Catholic Bishops in America in defense of the unborn, spoke at this year's March for Life in Washington, D.C.  He linked the evil of Abortion with the upcoming threat of Euthanasia, already a reality in parts of Europe. 

Here's the quote:
"A society that allows parents to kill their children will allow children to kill their parents."

Here in America we rely (as usual) on one of our trusty euphemisms: we call it Physician Aid in Dying (PAD) or physician assisted suicide, already legal in Oregon, Montana, Washington and Vermont. 

Adjutorium nostrum in nomine Domini.
