The Atlantic Bishops' (of Canada) "Pastoral Letter on Medical Assisted Dying."

It's available here.  At the risk of being called "legalistic" or "rigorist" or of being accused of not "getting" Pope Francis's emphasis on accompaniment . . . I think the letter is really disturbing.  It starts out bad -- with the title -- and doesn't get much better.  What Canadian Catholics -- and, indeed, the whole world (read Chuck Lane on Europe's "morality crisis") -- need to hear at this moment is not euphemizing, but instead clarity, about euthanasia.
