Minimizing harm

The present administration in Washington makes much of promoting a so-called "culture of life," and certainly reverence for life -- all life -- is a virtue that few people would disagree with. Yet this is the same administration that indirectly allows thousands of young people and married women in Africa to die of AIDS because of an policy that emphasizes abstinence over condoms. Beware of those who wears their moral absolutes on their sleeves -- the subject of this week's Musing.
