It has been a dramatic few weeks for genetics and cancer. First, national sex symbol Angelina Jolie took the courageous step of publicly revealing he...
I still don't know who Miranda is or why she is associated with the right to remain silent but now that the Supreme Court has ruled that a suspect's s...
The Supreme Court this week halted Arizona's attempt to thwart the will of Congress when it established national norms for voter registration in federal elections with the National Voter Registration Act of 1995.
In an age of expanding constraints on registration and voting that include voter ID laws, limited early voting, and curtailed registration drives, Scalia's unexpected warmth toward the Elections Clause just might be the gift that keeps on giving.
When we promote and permit intolerance through bans on same-sex marriage, we enable and encourage feelings of marginalization, depression, and isolation among gay people. As a result, things like substance use, alcohol consumption, and sexual risk taking increase.
Opponents of marriage equality claim that there are "negative consequences" to letting gay and lesbian couples marry. Marriage will deteriorate, they claim; fewer straight people will want to be a part of the institution. Well, that's a fine thing to claim, but the evidence just isn't there.

The Supreme Court got it right in 1972. The death penalty does violate the Constitution, because it is cruel and unusual punishment. And here's why.
As we enter Pride month, the impact of the Supreme Court hearings on Jason Collins reminds us yet again of the importance of the literally millions of LGBTIQ people who have come out and spoken the truth of their lives to their friends and family and to our nation.
Should companies be able to patent human genes? Today, the Supreme Court answered that profound question with a resounding NO. Seems like common sense, right?
I live my day to day life in a home, church and workplace where my status as a woman married to a woman is taken for granted.
