Always care, never kill: How physician-assisted suicide endangers the weak, corrupts medicine, compromises the family, and violates human dignity and equality

    The Heritage Foundation: Allowing physician-assisted suicide would be a grave mistake for four reasons. First, it would endanger the weak and vulnerable. Second, it would corrupt the practice of medicine and the doctor–patient relationship. Third, it would compromise the family and intergenerational commitments. And fourth, it would betray human dignity and equality before the law. Instead of helping people to kill themselves, we should offer them appropriate medical care and human presence. We should respond to suffering with true compassion and solidarity. Doctors should help their patients to die a dignified death of natural causes, not assist in killing. Physicians are always to care, never to kill.

Heritage panel: Personal opinion no excuse to abandon marriage laws

    Heritage: “Cuccinelli, who narrowly lost the Virginia governor’s race in November, joined two other legal experts at a Heritage event examining what they regard as a disturbing trend: the willingness of state attorneys general to heed U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s advice – and example – by refusing for political reasons to enforce or defend laws with which they disagree. The Friday afternoon event, called ‘Dereliction of Duty,’ also featured Carrie Severino, chief counsel and policy director of the Judicial Crisis Network, and Ed Whelan, president of the Washington, D.C.-based Ethics and Public Policy Center.”

    Christian Post: . . . according to Ryan T. Anderson, who writes about marriage and religious liberty for the Heritage Foundation, and co-author with Princeton’s Robert P. George and Sherif Girgis of What Is Marriage? Man and Woman: A Defense. His co-guest speaker Kellie Fiedorek, litigation counsel for Alliance Defending Freedom, also spoke about the implications of an unraveling marriage culture in the United States . . . According to Fiedorek, these cases have ramifications on traditional marriage, especially children, who are impacted by the dismantling of the institution. “Marriage not only has familial impact, but it also has societal impact,” she said, imploring the Rutgers students to be on the right side of history, so that one day a child won’t walk up to them and ask, “why did you choose that I shouldn’t have a mom; why did you choose that I should never get to know my dad.” [more]

Heritage Foundation Becomes a Handful for the GOP

    Wall Street Journal (via Google): For four decades, the Heritage Foundation was a stately think tank that sought to define conservative thinking for Republicans. Now, in one of the more significant transformations in the capital’s intellectual firmament, it has become an activist political operation trying to alter the course of conservative thinking. It now challenges establishment Republican leaders as much as it informs them, making waves in the process.
