Irish bishops decry bill to legalize euthanasia

CNA Staff, Feb 13, 2021 / 04:58 pm (CNA).- Catholic leaders and human rights advocates have expressed concern over a bill that would legalize physician-assisted suicide in Ireland. 

The Dying with Dignity 2020 bill has received opposition from the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission, as well as the Council for Life and the Consultative Group on Bioethics at the Catholic Bishops’ Conference.

The legislation was introduced in September and has received support from Sinn Féin, the Social Democrats, and the Labour Party.

Senate votes to acquit Trump for second time

Washington D.C., Feb 13, 2021 / 02:30 pm (CNA).- Former President Donald Trump has once again been acquitted by the Senate in an impeachment trial. 

The Senate voted 57-43 on Saturday, February 13  to acquit Trump of the charge of “incitement of insurrection.” While this represents a majority of senators, this number is ten votes short of the two-thirds majority of votes required to convict. 

The trial came to an abrupt end on Saturday afternoon after the Senate decided to not call forth any witnesses.
