Kresta in the Afternoon – April 7, 2020 – Hour 1

+  What can Doctors Do when facing the Unthinkable?

  • Description: With the raging coronavirus pandemic threatening millions with infection, people are rightly worried that we could face the awful circumstance in which there are insufficient life-saving medical resources available for all catastrophically ill patients needing care. If that dark day comes, decisions will literally have to be made as to who among the seriously ill will be given an optimal chance to fight for life under intensive medical care, and who may have to face a likely death, albeit under palliative care. Wes Smith walks us through the decisions facing doctors.

This is a passionate yet coolly reasoned book about the current crisis in medical ethics by an author who has made “the new thanatology” his consuming interest. (learn more)

+  Ten Years after Obamacare, Pro-Life Concerns Are Proven Right

  • Description: Last month marked the tenth anniversary of President Obama’s signing of the Affordable Care Act. The memories of that important political battle are still fresh in many minds. During 2009 and 2010, pro-lifers provided some of the most vocal opposition to serious flaws of the ACA. In fact, pro-life concerns about the conscience rights of religious employers and taxpayer funding for abortion nearly succeeded in blocking the legislation. We look back with Michael New.
