Catholic Directive May Thwart End-Of-Life Wishes - Kaiser Health News

News articles like this (could I call them alarmist?) have been trickling out since the revisions of Part Five of the ERDs was approved by the USCCB last November.

I appreciate this quote, but, unfortunately, it is not the article’s last word…

Dr. Porter Storey, a palliative care specialist for Kaiser Permanente who sees patients at Good Samaritan, said many Kaiser members and doctors, including himself, were alarmed. So he read the bishops’ revised directive carefully. Now he’s convinced it won’t stop him from providing appropriate end-of-life treatment.
