Paris, Dec 16, 2008 / 12:55 am (CNA).- A petition drive has been launched to support Grand Duke Henry I of Luxembourg, who has imperiled his political powers by opposing a euthanasia legalization bill recently proposed in his country’s parliament.
Socialist and Green party lawmakers are backing the measure, which Henry I has said he will not approve for reasons of conscience. The overwhelmingly Catholic population of Luxembourg reportedly also opposes the proposal.
I hope that this petition is successful. And for all of our English speaking French Catholics, here is a link to the petition which is also in the article:
I believe the petition itself is in French.
