Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly

Episode #147

This week on Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly, correspondent Paul Miller reports from Capitol Hill on this week's House vote and takes a look at why abortion will be a hot issue during the current election season. Next was a discussion about atheist's beliefs. NBC and contributing RENW correspondent Betty Rollin reports from the annual meeting of the Freedom from Religion Foundation. Rollin talks with members of the organization about their reasons for being atheists, what they do believe in and the dangers that go along with being a part of what many view as a very unpopular group. The program continued with a segment about progress in cloning research. The program concluded with a segment about the controversy surrounding the Bethany Memorial Reformed Church in New York City, which has served as a haven for cancer patients and their families by providing affordable accommodations while they were seeking treatment at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
