Killing Patients Isn’t Catholic

Religious order's hospitals rebuked

May 5, 2020  0

Vatican officials have ordered 15 psychiatric hospitals in Belgium to remove their Catholic name for killing their patients in euthanasia.

The hospitals are owned by a religious order called the Brothers of Charity. The order has been in trouble with Rome for years now, after its superior general, Bro. René  Stockman, called on Rome for help to curb the defiant group.

The Brothers published a pro-euthanasia policy in March 2017, and Stockman appealed to the Church's hierarchy to stop the killing — taking the issue all the way up to the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF).

In a statement today, the Belgian order responded to the CDF letter revoking its hospitals' Catholic identity, saying, "We regret and dispute, as an organization, the content of this letter. ... We do not see the need to adjust our operation in practice as a result."

Belgium is one of the countries where the euthanasia agenda has run rampant, with some now pushing to legalize the killing of terminally ill children.

Even though the CDF has rebuked the Brothers over euthanasia, the practice of helping patients kill themselves remains rampant in hospitals in Belgium and around the world.
