Should Dismemberment be Legal?

Public opinion about abortion in America can best be described as ambivalent: uncomfortable with unrestricted abortion, yet unwilling to ban it totally. Public opinion has remained pretty stable since Roe vs. Wade. One time it did move was when partial-birth abortion was being debated publicly in the late 90’s.  People became more willing to identify […]

Your Contribution to China’s One-Child Policy

Anne Roback Morse also contributed to this article. Two weeks ago, the US State Department ranked China as one of the worst countries in the world for sex-trafficking, giving the one-child policy as the root cause. This analysis is spot on. It is because of the one-child policy that Chinese parents are forced to artificially limit […]

WARNING! SPOILERS AHEAD. (That is if you want to read Inferno of your own free will.) I recently had the displeasure of reading Dan Brown’s new novel, Inferno, because I heard it had transhumanist themes. Essentially, it was the same book as Angels and Demons and The Da Vinci Code except this time the backdrop […]

Sex and the Supreme Court: Your 60-Second Guide to American Fertility

Last week the US Supreme Court ruled against the Defense of Marriage Act, ignoring the fundamental good to society of promoting marriages among those able to bear children, namely, marriages between a man and a woman, and the underlying nature of sexuality itself. Most conservatives believe that children come from sex. Conversely, many liberals believe children […]
