Why didn't somebody tell us?

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Jun 24, 2003

Stop-the-press news from the Family Research Council:

Apparently the National Institutes of Health has cured all known diseases. Cures for AIDS, autism, diabetes and cancer have been discovered, all preparations for possible terrorist attacks using biological weapons have been perfected and put in place, and little remains to be done in the realm of public health. Why else would the NIH continue to fund sex studies? How else are we to account for NIH providing a $147,000 grant of taxpayer money to fund a study of women's reactions to pornography, or $26,000 to underwrite a conference on sexual arousal?

(As you might have suspected, there's more to the story.
