The Defense Of Traditional Marriage, George W. Dent Jan 1999

The Defense Of Traditional Marriage, George W. Dent

Faculty Publications

This article reviews the possible justifications for legal recognition of marriage and finds some, such as encouraging stable, loving relationships, unpersuasive. However, other rationales-including protecting children, socializing adults, and promoting individual happiness-are valid, and these rationales apply only to traditional marriages. Accordingly, society has strong reasons to favor traditional marriage and to deny such treatment to the unmarried and to homosexual, endogamous and bestial relationships.

Clear And Present Danger: Enforcing The International Ban On Biological And Chemical Weapons Through Sanctions, Use Of Force, And Criminalization, Michael P. Scharf

Faculty Publications

Currently there are two means of enforcing the international prohibition of chemical and biological weapons. First, the international community can induce compliance through imposition of sanctions, such as trade embargoes, freezing of assets and diplomatic isolation. Second, when sanctions fail, States can individually or collectively respond to the threat of chemical or biological weapons by using military force. After exploring the potential strengths and weaknesses of these approaches, this article examines the desirability of supplementing them with a third approach based on the criminal prosecution of persons responsible for the production, stockpiling, transfer, or use of chemical and biological weapons.


The Amnesty Exception To The Jurisdiction Of The International Criminal Court, Michael P. Scharf Jan 1999

The Amnesty Exception To The Jurisdiction Of The International Criminal Court, Michael P. Scharf

Faculty Publications

This article examines the paradoxical question of whether the International Criminal Court will require justice at the expense of peace. Notwithstanding the popular catch phrase of the 1990s - "no peace without justice"' - peace and justice are sometimes incompatible goals. To end an international or internal conflict, negotiations must often be conducted with the very leaders who were responsible for war crimes and crimes against humanity. When this is the case, insisting on criminal prosecutions can prolong the conflict, resulting in more death, destruction, and human suffering.

A Proposal For Federal Legislation To Address Health Insurance Coverage For Experimental And Investigational Treatments, Sharona Hoffman Jan 1999

A Proposal For Federal Legislation To Address Health Insurance Coverage For Experimental And Investigational Treatments, Sharona Hoffman

Faculty Publications

Health insurance coverage for experimental treatments has generated significant debate and frequent litigation in recent years. In many cases, denials of coverage for investigational therapies constitute economically and ethically sound policy. This article argues, however, that health insurance providers should be required to cover experimental treatments in limited circumstances, namely, when they are administered in phase III clinical trials to patients with terminal illnesses who are likely to die within two years. This coverage mandate would help the sickest patients, who have no other treatment options, and would benefit medical researchers, who often face a dearth of patients willing to …
