How to make faith-based choices for medical care and life-sustaining treatment.
Written by MCFL Executive Director Patricia D. Stewart with a forward by Rev. Ronald K. Tacelli, S.J.
Healthcare decisions are a difficult area these days with so many within our medical establishment seemingly more interested in cost-cutting or grand reforms than in looking out for the best interests of individual patients. How is one to to know the right way to make moral, compassionate decisions for himself or his loved ones?
Patricia Stewart, a lawyer, MCFL’s Executive Director, and a practicing Catholic has the answer with the information-rich pocket guide. The Health-Care Decision Guide for Catholics addresses, in an intelligent but easily-understood way, many critical topics including:
- Starting or continuing medical treatment
- What to do when death appears imminent or inevitable
- Quality of life
- Living wills
- and much, much more…
The book does not provide pat answers to every question but it does greatly simplify the sometimes confusing decision-making process and offers several worksheets which can organize the process used to make critical choices. Respect for Life is of paramount concern in in this short volume and it would be a great help to any faith-filled person trying to chart a moral course through the bewildering world of health-care.
This book is aimed at Catholics but would be a valuable resource for those of other faiths or no faith who seek to make moral health-care choices which always respect the sanctity of human life.
