Biden Administration’s Plan to Destroy Medical Conscience is Un-American

If news reports are right, the Biden administration intends to force doctors and nurses to participate in abortions—even when it violates their religious beliefs. It plans to force Catholic hospitals to violate Church teachings by requiring them to provide sterilization and gender transition procedures, even on children. Read More ›

Vaccine Mandates are an Exploding Cigar

In short, treat us like free Americans. Not only will that promote comity, but I believe it would also make skeptics more likely to accept the shot. And here’s a big bonus: No national exploding cigar. Read More ›

Anti-Conscience Mandates Force Doctors to Violate Their Religious Beliefs

Compelling doctors to hew to secular cultural values in their practice of medicine is both authoritarian and un-American. If the anti-medical conscience campaign succeeds, we will all be the poorer for it. Read More ›
