"[By] Richard M. Gula, S.S."
Includes bibliographical references.
"[T]he debate about euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide is more a debate about competing and conflicting moral visions and values than anything else. This book tries to identify the main features of the visions and values shaping the debate, especially those upheld by the Catholic moral tradition.. .... The final chapter tries to 'walk the talk', as it were, by sketching a pastoral response to the euthanasia movement. It will identify the virtues, personal and corporate, which witness to the kind of moral and spiritual life we need to live if our arguments against euthanasia are to be credible". -- Intro.

Notes
"Allow me, as an agnostic Anglican, to congratulate the Rev. Lee Lambert on his heartfelt and beautifully written reflection ['Notes from a funeral', Oct. 2011, p. 6]. I once went to the funeral of the child of a friend, and the (Catholic) priest won my heart by quoting these words, 'We aren't here to explain this terrible tragedy or to ask God why. We're here because we don't know what else to do'. He too had the good sense to get out of the way". [Text of entire article.]

"[B]y Thomas A. Shannon and Charles N. Faso".
"As a way of responding to our new situation, the following materials are presented as a guide through a difficult time of decision, possibly one of the most difficult and painful decisions we may have to make in our entire life; the decision to remove a life support system. The material is offered, first, as a way to think through what we are doing. The following questions and discussions are offered as a way of examining our options, to clarify what we are doing, to help us get a sense of our responsibilities and our limits. Second, we offer a Family Prayer Service which can be used before the life support system is withdrawn." -- Intro., p. 3.
Contents: Introduction -- What Should I Do ? -- Conclusion -- The Family Prayer Service -- Readings.
