Catholic Church's Teachings on End of Life Issues by Rev. Pier Nicanor Austracio,
In union with the Catholic
Bishops of the United States, the Council of Major Superiors of Women Religious
joins with other citizens, Catholic and non-Catholic alike, in calling upon our
government to protect and defend the rights and freedoms upon which our nation
was founded. We believe that our first and most fundamental freedom, the right
to religious liberty and freedom of conscience, is gravely violated by the ruling
announced on January 20th by the Department of Health and Human Services. The
accommodation announced by President Obama on February 10th does not respect nor
safeguard our rights or the rights of others.
We join our bishops, other
religious leaders and concerned citizens in calling for the mandate to be rescinded
and for the broadening of a religious exemption. In love for our country, we continue
to pray for a renewed zeal for truth and for the preservation of our God-given
rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness that are integral to our
identity as a nation. In His mysterious Providence, may God be at work in this
critical moment in our history to "make all things new" (cf. Revelation 21:5).
