I have a piece in today’s NRO about Ashley’s Case. The article was written a few weeks ago when the story was hotter, but I think it remains worth our contemplation. In the column, I worry that Ashley was used as a subject of unethical human experimentation, point out that “what we do matters more than why we do it,” and endorse Art Caplan’s point that parents need to have a realistic “hope that their daughter can be somewhere safe and caring after they are gone.”
