Diocese of Raleigh Seminarian with terminal brain cancer responds to Brittany Maynard October 29, 2014

The Diocese of Raleigh writes:

Philip Johnson, a 30-year-old Catholic seminarian from the Diocese of Raleigh who has terminal brain cancer, has written an article responding to Brittany Maynard, the 29-year-old woman who has publicly stated her plan to commit suicide due to the fact that she has a terminal brain cancer. Johnson is vocal about his disagreement that suicide would preserve one’s dignity in the face of a debilitating illness.

With frankness, he talks about the things he will possibly miss due to an early death and the toll his brain cancer will have on his body. Never-the-less, he is resolute that each person has a responsibility to live out each day to the fullest, and that each day is a gift from God that should never be snuffed out.
