Arguing Is a Virtue

        Imagine living in a world in which you couldn't separate truth from error.  You wouldn't be able to tell food from poison, or friend from foe.  You couldn't tell good from bad, right from wrong, healthy from unhealthy, or safe from unsafe.  Such a world would be a dangerous place.  You wouldn't survive long.

The American Holocaust

  Lynching of Blacks by the KKK. Jewish genocide under the Third Reich. Abortion in America. Do these three have anything in common?       Early this fall, the campus of the University of Kansas was rocked by a controversy that made headlines in the national press.  Two pro-life groups--the Center for Bioethical Reform and Heartland Life Network--had posted a "pictorial essay" at a prominent crossroads on campus.

When It Comes to Abortion, No One Talks about the One Question that Matters. It's the One Question the President Never Asks.

  Answering this One Question Solves the Abortion Controversy....         When President Clinton vetoed the ban on partial-birth abortion for a second time on October 10, there's one thing he didn't discuss:  abortion.        The President talked about choice and privacy.  He mentioned the risk to the mother of carrying a child to term, and the trauma of delivering an infant with serious congenital defect.

        Jack Kevorkian, known by some as "Doctor Death" and by others as "Jack the Dripper," has assisted the suicide of 45 people to date by allowing a deadly dose of barbiturate to drip into their veins.  To my knowledge, not a single one of his "patients" was terminally ill.       Kevorkian champions a new right, the "right to die."  This right is not recognized by any state but Oregon, but that may change soon.

Christians Are Getting Upset about Cloning for the Wrong Reasons

  In the movie, "The Boys from Brazil," it was used to try to recreate Hitler. In "Jurassic Park," it was employed to bring back an entire prehistoric era to life. In "Multiplicity," Michael Keaton used it to try get twice as much work done and still have time to play golf. This past year, the stuff of movies and science-fiction became reality.
