The Tragic Death of Vincent Lambert

Source: FSSPX News

Vincent Lambert on July 11, 2019, at the age of 42 at the Reims University Hospital Center.

Severely handicapped following a traffic accident in 2008, the justice of men and a doctor forgetful of his Hippocratic oath felt that his life was not worth living, and that to lavish on him  the most basic care—food and water—would constitute unreasonable obstinacy, i.e., extraordinary treatment.

Despite numerous approaches and a heroic fight with their lawyers, Vincent Lambert’s parents are mourning their son today, a victim of active euthanasia, an assassination in disguise.

“Vincent’s death...was imposed on him as on us...we can only resign ourselves in sorrow and incomprehension, but also in hope,” they wrote shortly before this death.

The editorial team of FSSPX.News offers its profound condolences to these parents so afflicted.

Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him.
