  • Archbishop Sartain gave permission for a funeral in a Catholic Church for a gay, right-to-die activist, Robert Fuller, after he committed assisted suicide. The Archdiocese of Seattle was fully aware of the man’s plans to kill himself yet still granted Fuller a Catholic funeral. The day of Fuller’s death included a “marriage” to his homosexual partner and a party with his friends and family. (LifeSiteNews)
  • In a joint statement with other Washington bishops, Archbishop Sartain urged the governor of Washington to veto Senate Bill 6219 which mandated abortion coverage in state insurance plans. Sartain called this bill an “assault” on “the inherent dignity of every human person from the moment of conception until natural death.” (Northwest Catholic)
