In a terrible irony, four Israeli doctors have been arrested for conducting unethical medical experiments on the elderly. I keep warning that when we lose sight of the crucial understanding that each human has intrinsic value simply and merely because he or she is human, terrible consequences follow. Stories like this are early storm warnings of that truth.

Dear Reader,

Your charitable support for First Things is urgently needed before July 1.

First Things is a proudly reader-supported enterprise. The gifts of readers like you— often of $50, $100, or $250—make articles like the one you just read possible.

This Spring Campaign—one of our two annual reader giving drives—comes at a pivotal season for America and the church. With your support, many more people will turn to First Things for thoughtful religious perspectives on pressing issues of politics, culture, and public life.

All thanks to you. Will you answer the call?
