John Dolan and and Father Kevin Flannery S.

John Dolan and and Father Kevin Flannery S.J. offer the philosophical and Catholic underpinnings of the arguement to spare Terri Schindler Schiavo from euthanasia. “The life of Theresa Schiavo possesses incalculable and inviolable worth and dignity. An attempt to cut off her food and water would be attempted murder. In the words of the Catholic moral theologians cited in the 1992 Resource Paper of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, ‘the inherent dignity and worth of the human person obligates us to provide this patient with care and support’.”
