“Helping in assisted suicide, the doctor cooperates with the patient’s will, and this means he shares the patient’s intention,” the cardinal noted. “For this reason, even mere cooperation is an intrinsically evil act, as grave as if the doctor personally ended the life of the patient.”
Eijk also reiterated Church teaching on funerals for Catholics who choose euthanasia or assisted suicide.

Abp. Vincenzo Paglia (CNS/Alessandro Bianchi/Reuters)
“If a patient asks the priest to administer him the sacraments (confession or anointing of the sick) and plans a funeral before the doctor ends his life upon his request or he commits suicide, the priest cannot do so,” he said, for three reasons.
First, “a person can receive the sacraments only when he is in a good disposition, and this is not the case when a person wants to oppose the order of creation, violating the intrinsic value of his life.”
Second, the person who “receives the sacraments puts his life in the merciful hands of God. However, [he] who wants to personally end his life wants to take his life in his hands.”
Third, “if the priest administers the sacraments or plans a funeral in these cases, the priest is guilty of a scandal, since his actions might suggest that suicide or euthanasia are permitted in certain circumstances.”

“Alder Hey Children’s Hospital refused oxygen and water to Alfie for the first nine hours after his ventilator was removed, and starved him of food for 36 hours, greatly worsening his condition. Refusing nutrition, hydration and ventilation to a small child is not an act of mercy: It is a cruel and barbaric form of execution. Is Cdl. Nichols arguing that such an act, in effect euthanasia by stealth, is a form of palliative care?

The Catechism also specifies who is to make the decisions to discontinue treatment. If the patient is unable to make the decision, such decisions should be made by those who are “legally entitled to act for the patient” — in this case, Alfie’s parents — and their “reasonable will and legitimate interests must always be respected.” By what sleight of hand can Cdl. Nichols interpret this to mean that “a court must decide what’s best not for the parents, but for the child”?”

“Cardinal Wilhelm Jacobus Eijk, archbishop of Utrecht, recently spoke with CNA in Rome, while giving a presentation on euthanasia. Eijk studied medicine before becoming a priest, and wrote a doctoral dissertation on euthanasia.  

The cardinal, however, identifies euthanasia as only one of many issues the Church is facing amidst a secularizing society.”

“Wesley J. Smith made the same point in a recent First Things article, where he declares, “If a society is judged by the way it treats its most vulnerable members, we will reject the let’s-kill-Alzheimer’s-patients agenda out of hand and focus on improving our capacities to care.”
