Upcoming bioethics conference from CAP: Nov. 3-4

Nationally recognized experts in bioethics, including Carrie Earll from Focus on the Family, will be in Phoenix on November 3 to address questions about rapidly advancing technologies in medicine and science. Come to "The Biotech Century: Facing Our Future" to learn what every Christian needs to know about stem cell research, assisted reproductive technologies like in vitro fertilization, why everyone needs a living will and medical power of attorney, and what those documents absolutely must cover. Carrie Earll, Focus on the Family's bioethics expert, will help believers apply the Christian worldview to all areas of bioethics. Carrie has had hundreds of interviews on bioethics topics and has appeared on CNN, NPR, as well as in the New York Times. Call 602-424-2525 or go online to to reserve you spot at the conference today!

Legislative internships
The Center for Arizona Policy has openings for legislative interns starting January 2008. CAP's Legislative Internship Program provides students the opportunity to gain first-hand experience in non-profit government relations and participate in the daily operations of a policy organization. Internships are part-time and may include a stipend. The program is open to college undergraduates or graduate students. We are looking for individuals who have a basic understanding of the legislative process, computer competency, and strong written, oral, and research skills. Interns must have access to transportation. For more information, call 602-424-2525 or send an email to

Required Reading?
Three leading candidates for president - John Edwards, Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton - were asked this question at a debate last week: "Would you be comfortable having this story (King and King) read to your children as part of their school curriculum?" The question referred to the Massachusetts incident last year when second graders were required to read a fairy tale about same-sex marriage where a young prince marries another young prince. John Edwards responded, "Yes, absolutely." Senator Obama said, "I feel very similar to John." Senator Clinton answered, "I really respect what both John and Barack said." Not one of the three responded with a strong defense or even any real defense of parental rights or traditional marriage.
