Bishop Michael F. Olson Requests Prayers for Tinslee Lewis and Reaffirms Church Teaching on the Dignity of Every Human Life

Fort Worth Diocese

November 10, 2019

I ask all to join me in prayers for Tinslee Lewis, her family, and her nurses and doctors.

I reaffirm the Church’s teaching on the dignity of every human life and the immorality of euthanasia especially as articulated in the Catechism of the Catholic Church (#2276-2279).

I do not know the details of Tinslee’s case other than what has been proffered by third parties through social media. Her family has not contacted the Catholic Diocese of Fort Worth.

Nonetheless, I am available to be of assistance pastorally and spiritually to Tinslee, her family, and all involved with her health care if so invited.
