doing good.... How 'bout you?

I'm doing great and I feel healthy....

I have finally arrived on a topic for my senior research paper. The ethical and legal issues surrounding withholding treatment from severely handicapped newborns.

Enjoy the snow; don't get stuck.

Will you post your paper online? Or at least make it available to those wanting to read it? Glad you got the shiny side up Dan!

Have fun with Peter Singer, the utilitarian! I believe he's honest in expressing his arguments, but I don't agree with many of his premises nor, therefore, his conclusions. I have no doubts about what would be his opinion of the value of Benji's life. Enjoy this incredible exercise of your mind and heart!

I would love to read your paper when you're finished, if you post it. I have had several discussions w/Sarah relating to this topic & want to know what YOU have to say about it. Our good friends lost a baby at birth due to anencephaly. Not the same, I know, but all connected re:pregnancy & sanctity of life issues.

I am praying that you have clarity of thought & retention, discernment and Godly wisdom throughout this project & also thru this remaining semester. There are plenty of establishments in need of truth & direction on this whole subject.

It would be so interesting to see where your research takes you especially because I have first hand experience working with those infants. I always wonder in the long run what quality of life all the life-sustaining and life-saving procedures will have for a infant born 15 weeks premature. These are the premies prone to terrible head bleeds, bad lungs, and many other medical and mental problems. It's a hard issue and I'm proud to see you tackle it.
