New Life and Family Academy Offers Clear Catholic Teaching on End-of-Life Issues

1Peter5, Maike Hickson: As we reported in October of 2017, a new John Paul II Academy for Human Life and the Family (JAHLF) has been founded in order to continue the ethical work of the Pontifical Academy for Life (PAL) as well as of the John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and the Family, both of which have been gravely reformed in the recent past by Pope Francis. As we also reported, in November of last year, the Pontifical Academy for Life hosted a conference in which promoters of euthanasia were invited to speak.

Today, the newly founded morally orthodox academy (of which I am gratefully honored to be a member of the Advisory Board), has published its first official statement (PDF link), which critically examines this recent November 2017 PAL conference, and which reiterates the sound Catholic doctrine with regard to questions such as palliative care, end-of-life care, and euthanasia.
