PHILADELPHIA, Sept 10 (LSN) – Yesterday Roman Catholic Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua, head of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, urged the U.S. Congress to support the federal Lethal Drug Abuse Prevention Act which would enable the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration to revoke the licenses of doctors who intentionally prescribed drugs to assist a patient in committing suicide. Reuters reported that the cardinal’s recommendation was given in a letter and aimed at putting an end to Oregon’s law permitting assisted suicide which was enacted last year.
