This hour we take a look at several significant issues before U.S. Courts that impact family and culture. We will get an update on a recent U.S. House of Representatives hearing where a doctor tried to convince the members of the Committee why life-altering surgery is somehow justifiable for people who are struggling with self-awareness. We will also discuss a second Title IX rule that has just been issued. Come and enjoy a lively conversation between mother and daughter!
Join us as we take a look at the world around us from a Bible-based perspective. After looking at some stories making news, we talk with a physician who was instrumental in her persuasive arguments in shaping the recent 5th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals ruling on the FDA and the abortion pill regime. We round out the hour talking with the man who believes human exceptionalism compels us to fight to protect our fellow man from harm. We will tackle questions like: Is there such a thing as ‘hybrid children’? Why does the AMA support the idea of putting an artificial uterus in a man? Get ready to think biblically and critically.
