Euthanasia, today, is a sternly debated issue in bioethics. Appeals to false notions of freedom, dignity, and mercy are made to justify it. The Church strongly affirms the dignity of the human person. The Church also believes that Christ has given human pain and suffering a redemptive purpose. Fr. Saliga's presentation is designed to help participants critically reflect upon their own presuppositions regarding freedom and how those presuppositions impact their approach to patients and loved ones within the end-of-life context. "Freedom of Indifference" and "Freedom for Excellence" are distinguished and defined with the help of two real-world end-of-life cases.
