Those whose lives are diminished or weakened deserve special respect. Sick or handicapped persons should be helped to lead lives as normal as possible. Whatever its motives and means, direct euthanasia consists in putting an end to the lives of handicapped, sick, or dying persons. It is morally unacceptable. (Catechism of the Catholic Church #2276 & 2277).
LifeTree‘s original mission has been expanded into an educational effort to raise awareness throughout North Carolina about the need to protect life, from its earliest beginnings to natural death. This site includes information about Palliative Care.
