Queston: Who was the first person besides Jesus’ parents, Joseph and Mary, to recognize Jesus as Messiah? Answer: John the Baptist, when he was a fetus and Jesus was but an embryo.

As a perennial Top Five PAC contributor to political campaigns, the Illinois State Medical Society is one of the most influential lobbying groups in the state. ISMS’s 2006 candidate questionnaire includes its position against pharmacists dispensing the morning after pill without a prescription. To read the question in its entirety, see page 2. ISMS’s position [...]
Yesterday, Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s spokeswoman Abby Ottenhoff defended his position against a parental notification law by outrageously advocating that victims be kept trapped and silenced from receiving legal help.
