Manufacturing a Generation of Sickly Children

In a recent conversation with a friend of ours who is a doctor, we discussed the apparent increase of "rare diseases" that seem to be the "plague" of our modern world. This doctor is a prestigious nenatologist with over 30 years of experience, someonoe who knows what he is talking about. He expressed his concern, mentioning the fact that the hospital where he works has tripled its pediatric oncology medical team over the course of the last twenty years given that the incidence of childhood cancer, especially leukemia, is on the rise. According to this doctor, on average a case of leukemia is diagnosed "once a month and sometimes once a week." The conversation would definitely have proved most interesting, had it not been interrupted. I must admit, I had several more questions on my list for him.

Preparing for Eternal Beatitude

End-of-life issues abound in modern culture.  Some western countries have had euthanasia and assisted suicide laws in place for years.  Other countries are gradually moving in that direction.  Medical societies are becoming more agreeable to the support of legalization of euthanasia. Some medical institutions and practitioners are beginning to endorse programs that place economics and institutional quality metrics ahead of the interests of individual patients. 

Living the Fullness of Married Love

Beginning-of-Life Ethics Related to the Dignity of Marriage. 

Marriages are under a greater threat today than ever before.  Divorce rates are higher than ever. Children are learning to cope with blended families and the absence of parents in their lives.  Many couples choose to have pets rather than children and by so doing cancel out the procreative aspect of marriage all together.  It can be said that by doing so, these couples are entering into an adult contract, not a marriage, since one of the basic ‘goods’ of marriage is the openness to children.
