  44. <description><![CDATA[I recently caught a segment on PBS NEWSHOUR and the topic was in vitro fertilization (IVF) and its ethical concerns. But as usual there was little mention of the children created by these methods. What was most striking to me is that throughout all the discussion of multiples and the problems therein, and about how [&#8230;]]]></description>

  96. <description><![CDATA[This is an outdated post that was written during the 2016 U.S. presidential primaries, albeit not previously published. Its principal message, however, is still relevant. &#160; Back in 1968, the late senator Bobby Kennedy predicted that in 40 years it was a realistic possibility that a black man could be elected president.

Whenever an adopted person tries to bring up the fact that adoption is not all it&#8217;s cracked to be, he or she is met with rebuttals. I analyzed several of those rebuttals in my earlier post. So now I&#8217;d like to share another rebuttal, [&#8230;]]]></description>
