Euthanasia ‘creates toxic and deadly pathologies’ that hurt the weakest, says Cardinal Müller

(CNS) The Vatican’s doctrinal chief has told an audience in Canada “we shall prevail” in opposing legalised euthanasia.

Cardinal Gerhard Müller addressed an audience of bioethicists, theologians, doctors and nurses at Toronto’s St Michael’s Cathedral Basilica on Monday.

The prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith called Canada’s turn to legalised euthanasia “tragic.”

“Euthanasia not only constitutes a grave wrong in itself, but its legalisation creates toxic and deadly social pathologies that disproportionately afflict the weakest members of society,” Cardinal Müller said. [More]
