US: nursing homes must offer euthanasia or close

Background briefing: with the closure of Catholic adoption agencies, the US was ahead of us in Britain. This is the shape of things to come with Catholic nursing homes.

From SPUC: A bill that would allow assisted suicide in California could force
Catholic nursing homes to close, a bioethicist has warned. Wesley J.
Smith, an author and lawyer, warned that under the law, Catholic nursing
homes will face the choice of shutting down or permitting assisted suicide
on site, as the only loophole in the proposed law is for acute care
hospitals. [LifeSiteNews, 26 February]

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
