ChelseaAbortion, Bioethics, Homosexuality, IVF, MediaLeave a Comment

This morning I was on the Mike Allen Show to talk about: Bristol Palin and the tricky pro-life tightrope, the bio-ethical implications of Justice Kennedy’s marriage opinion (in other words: “marriage equality” leads to “family equality” and more and more third party reproduction — #adultswin #childrenlose), and, finally, why “transability” isn’t as crazy as it used to be.

DOMA ≠ Anti-Miscegenation Laws

ChelseaHomosexuality, Marriage2 Comments

I don’t know about you, but one of my biggest pet-peeves in the debate over same-sex marriage is the comparison of SSM to interracial marriages.

I really liked his response to this woman which … Read More

Confession: I did not go to Chick-fil-A last Wednesday. But I did have a long conversation with my very liberal grandmother about homosexuality/same-sex marriage when it came up. Does that make up for it? A couple of articles related to this whole mess that I want to draw your attention to, if you haven’t seen them already: First – JoAnne … Read More
