During Respect Life Month, the church promotes compassion, empathy, and respect for all human beings, especially those in their most vulnerable moments. As part of that commitment, we are providing a valuable resource on end-of-life decision-making that was written by the New York State Catholic Conference. This 20-page booklet, accessible through the link below, offers insights into the ethical and moral considerations surrounding end-of-life choices. Additional topics covered include living wills, do-not-resuscitate orders, and the Family Health Care Decisions Act (FHCDA), which is the law in New York State. There is also a ready-to-use Health Care Proxy form. We encourage you to use this document, whether you’re looking for guidance, practical information, or simply wish to engage with these vital discussions.
