Twitter has restored an Irish Catholic bishop's post about assisted suicide following a review.
In the Jan. 31 tweet, Bishop Kevin Doran expressed opposition to efforts to legalize the practice in Ireland.
He wrote: "There is dignity in dying. As a priest, I am privileged to witness it often. Assisted suicide, where it is practiced, is not an expression of freedom or dignity, but of the failure of a society to accompany people on their 'way of the cross.'"
The tweet included a link to the Facebook page of the Diocese of Elphin, which Doran has led since 2014. The link directed readers to a message inviting healthcare professionals to add their names to a petition expressing concern about a bill to legalize physician-assisted suicide in Ireland.
