EU Euthanasia threat

Briefing. The use of supranational bodies to impose the pro-death agenda is becoming an established pattern.

From CFNews: Members of the European Parliament have called on member states to legalise euthanasia in response to what they call public demand to be given individual choice. At a hearing in Brussels, UK Liberal Democrat MEP Chris Davies said euthanasia should not be a question of health policy but of human rights across Europe. Speaking to journalists after the event, he said: 'It is heartless that British law should not only force people to travel abroad if they are determined to end their suffering, but also to threaten with criminal prosecution any loved ones who assist them.' Italian Radical Party MEP Marco Cappato said evidence from Belgium and the Netherlands showed there was no 'slippery slope' to increased suicide. [Channel 4, SPUC] 1368.6

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
