Bioethics

The Downsides of “Right to Try” by Wesley J. Smith – “A lot of people are cheering the new ‘right to try’ law enacted recently, that permits terminally ill people access to experimental drugs not yet approved by the FDA. I get it.

Sexual Purity

Called Out at Home - Breaking the Rules Ruins a Glorious Game by James M. Kushiner - "An organized ball game is to faux-play baseball what marital sex is to sex as it is currently being promoted. Sexual activity severed from both marriage and family formation is like baseball activity without a real game in view: the physical sensations may be the same, but they lack purpose other than a quick feel-good. It's the difference between the meaning of a hook-up or one-night stand and the meaning of intercourse between a chaste man and wife who are deeply in love and open to having a family. One is merely orgasmic, the other romantic and marital. One is recreational, the other pro-creational."

Worldview and Culture
