Editor's note: This article is being published posthumously to set the record straight. It is published in response to misstatements by Richard McCormick in an article in America (March 14, 1992). This article, which had been accepted by America in July of 1987, was never published by them Father Connery's clear, concise reasoning is even more important in light of the Pennsylvania Bishops' statement on fluids, nutrition, and euthanasia.
