Euthanasia? Marcelo says he knows what the Pope says, but he must not say what he thinks


Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, candidate, does not say what he thinks about euthanasia because Marcelo-Presidente will have to make a decision when the law comes to him that must be approved next week in Parliament. Faced with what he said in one of the television debates about revising himself in the Church’s social doctrine and in Pope Francis, he still does not directly answer the question of whether he thinks the same thing as the Popes on this subject.

We have Parliament about to approve, to take the final vote on euthanasia. Regardless of the formulation of the law that is passed, what do you think about the legalization of euthanasia?
The President of the Republic gave his opinion on a specific text. The last version is that it is truly the one on which it is going to comment. And then, either the intervention of the Constitutional Court is raised, or the veto that is normally called political is exercised, or it is promulgated.

But as a candidate who stated that he is from the social right, that he sees himself in the social doctrine of the church, in Pope Francis … Do you share the position of the Pope who considers euthanasia a defeat?
At this moment, everything I said was a preview of my position, or conditioned my position on the matter.

I know what the Pope says, I know what the previous popes said, I know the position of the Catholic Church and other religious denominations, I know the position of other sectors.

Don’t forget, I was a great promoter of a debate that was the longest on the subject, promoted by the National Ethics Council. And therefore, I have always maintained that it was very important to be the object of appreciation, analysis, and general debate.

But the President is speaking about the diploma that will reach his hands, when it reaches his hands.
