In recent months, heartbreaking stories of Americans struggling with devastating diagnoses have captured our empathy. In response, activists are using these stories to advance legislation that has otherwise been rejected by the people. At least 13 states across the country are considering legislation that would legalize physician-assisted suicide. But legalizing physician-assisted suicide would be a grave mistake. The merciful thing would be to expect doctors to do no harm and ease the pain of those who suffer and support families and ministries in providing that care.
Elected President of Mexico in 2000, Vicente Fox ended leftist rule that dominated the nation’s politics for seven decades. His administration implemented sound economic and fiscal policies that helped stabilize the Mexican national economy and paved the way for its current successes.
In its February 25 North Carolina Dental v. Federal Trade Commission decision, the Supreme Court held that a state regulatory board that is controlled by market participants in the industry being regulated cannot invoke “state action” antitrust immunity unless it is “actively supervised” by the state. Will this decision discourage harmful protectionist regulation, such as the prohibition on tooth whitening by non-dentists at issue in this case? Will it also interfere with the ability of states to shape their regulatory programs as they see fit? A U.S. Federal Trade Commissioner and two expert commentators will address this important set of questions.
