Project to build Catholic home for dying moving ahead in Oregon

Here’s an interesting story from the Catholic Sentinel, newspaper of the Archdiocese of Portland, Ore., regarding a project involving a Catholic home for the dying in northeast Portland. The subject of death with dignity continues as a front-burner topic in the state, which has seen more than its share of debates on the issues of assisted suicide and euthanasia over the past decade and a half.

As the paper points out, Oregon voters approved assisted suicide in 1994 and again in 1997 after an effort to have the law repealed.
