A comment from “jimmy” notes that I failed in my stated intention to be proactive rather than reactive. But, I prefer to call the post a “response.” Or rebuttal.
The reference was to self-identified progressives.
The Progressives’ meeting was sponsored by John Podesta’s organization.
They are not prolife at either end of life.
They are Chairs and Directors of University bioethics centers (the Universities at Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Virginia, Tuskegee) and Dr. Caplan helps edit the American Journal of Bioethics.
Moreno is the Immediate Past President of the American Society of Bioethics and the Humanities and Rita Alta Charo is on the Board of Directors of that organization.
One of the articles I referenced was from the journal, Nature.
The progressives do claim that
‘It is important for progressive bioethics to enter the political fray,’ says Arthur Caplan, an ethicist at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.
(Um, he’s the Director and Chair…)
I suppose that jimmy disagrees with my definition of an election as the “ultimate poll.”
