Interview with Cardinal Seán O’Malley to Appear on the CatholicTV Network
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WATERTOWN, MA (November 29, 2012) –Interview with Cardinal Seán O’Malley to Appear on the CatholicTV Network
On November 30, 2012, Cardinal Seán O’Malley will discuss the defeat of the Massachusetts Ballot Question 2 on the CatholicTV Network's Weekly News Magazine Show, ClearVoice™.
On Election Day in November, the people of Massachusetts successfully rejected the so-called “Death with Dignity” Act. Question 2 would have allowed an adult resident of Massachusetts, deemed to have the capacity to make health care decisions, and determined by two physicians to have a disease that will likely result in death within six months, to request and receive a prescription for a lethal drug that he or she may self-administer.
Following the defeat of Question 2 Cardinal Seán called for the medical community to move forward in providing medical support for patients, rather than helping them end their lives.
"Our society must continue to work with hospice organizations and other palliative care providers to improve the care provided to the terminally ill. Patients are best served when the medical professionals, families and loved ones provide support and care with dignity and respect," he said.
The Cardinal will discuss the defeat of Physician Assisted Suicide during CatholicTV’s new episode of ClearVoice™, on Friday, November 30, 2012 at 11AM ET. Also appearing on Friday’s episode will be Fr. Ed Riley, the Spiritual Director and Liaison for the Archdiocese of Boston’s Home School Ministry, to discuss home schooling as Religious Education month comes to an end.

The CatholicTV Network’s weekly news magazine show, ClearVoice™, premieres new episodes Fridays at 11AM ET with rebroadcasts throughout the week.
