Catholic and Jewish Bioethics Perspectives Explored

The July 14 on-line edition of the Catholic Sentinel (the "Oldest Catholic Newspaper on the West Coast") has an interesting piece about the remarks of Rabbi Daniel Sinclair, a visiting professor of biomedical law at the Jesuits' Fordham University Law School and a teacher at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, and Father John Tuohey, director of Providence Center for Health Care Ethics.  Topics included in the brief article: life-support for patients in a persistent vegetative state, the doctrine of double effect, the distinction between withholding and withdrawing treatment, and physician-assisted suicide.
