IVF baby born using revolutionary genetic-screening process

    Guardian: The birth demonstrates how next-generation sequencing (NGS), which was developed to read whole genomes quickly and cheaply, is poised to transform the selection of embryos in IVF clinics. Though scientists only looked at chromosomes – the structures that hold genes – on this occasion, the falling cost of whole genome sequencing means doctors could soon read all the DNA of IVF embryos before choosing which to implant in the mother.

Meet the man behind the Federal marriage amendment

    National Journal: The Supreme Court may have given a boost for same-sex marriage supporters, but that doesn’t mean Rep. Tim Huelskamp is giving up. Late last week, the Kansas Republican introduced a constitutional amendment that would ban same-sex marriage. To be sure, adding an amendment to the founding document of the United States is a long shot to say the least, even if it gains some attention in the beginning stages.

Same-Sex Marriage and Religious Freedom, Fundamentally At Odds | Matthew J. Franck at NRO

    Matthew J. Franck at Public Discourse: Should the truth about marriage—that it unites men and women so that children will have fathers and mothers—be defied by the laws of the land, we cannot expect the religious freedom of those who believe in that ancient truth to be respected under the new dominion of falsehood. After all, if redefining marriage to include same-sex couples accords with justice and moral truth, there is no good reason for the new legal order to make room for “conscientious” religious dissenters, for clearly their consciences are malformed and unworthy of respect. Thus the fate of religious freedom, for scores of millions of Americans, stands or falls with the fate of conjugal marriage itse

Homosexuals Champion Sexual Perception Over Biology

    Nathan Cherry at Engage Family Minute: One of the biggest problems facing our culture has nothing to do with the actual biology and sexual orientation of people. As we all know, biology is formed before we are born, and sexual orientation is intricately linked to it. Rather, a major problem is the perceived biology and sexual orientation of people. As our society continues to run headlong toward some androgynous utopia it seems the number of people perceiving their sexual orientation to be frequently changing climbs.
