I Am a Heroin User. I Do Not Have a Drug Problem

quote [ You write that only ?healthy, responsible adults? should use recreational drugs. Who should decide who is the healthy, responsible adult?

Fun fact: I've spent a considerable amount of my adult life silently screaming to the universe, "I did not consent to this!"

Meet Virginia Apgar, the unlikely anesthesiologist who saved newborn babies

quote [ Since Apgar was a ?lowly? anesthesiologist, she wasn?t in a position to directly challenge how obstetricians did their work. Moreover, she was a woman in a man?s world. Nevertheless, she devised the "Apgar score" ? a way to observe and document the condition of every newborn. It was a simple, indirect approach that had powerful results in terms of helping to dramatically decrease the infant mortality rate. ]

This score is pretty common; interesting history! It even contains a gamification aspect.

Dr. Opioid: The Well-Heeled Philadelphia Doctor Harboring a Dark Secret

quote [ William O?Brien was a well-heeled doctor with a thriving Philadelphia medical practice. He was also at the center of a massive painkiller supply chain run by an outlaw biker gang. ]

The image of the opioid epidemic is that it is something that happens out in rural areas and undercover - can't get more mainstream than downtown Philly.

Saints once did abortions ? it was a lesser sin than oral sex

quote [ Today?s repeated refrain that ?you can?t be Catholic and pro-choice? indicates an ignorance of history and a disregard for the views of the majority of Catholics themselves, who hold much more progressive values than church leaders generally allow, including in Ireland. ]

Sorry, another religiously motivated stance on the subject
