3) letters and articles Steven published recently in the Journal of Medical Ethics and the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) Pediatrics rebutting falsehoods from Brian Morris. Steven also talked more generally about how every movement has a Morris analog or two and how he actually assists our work by helping us to remain focused and inducing us to ratchet up our accuracy and commitment to the highest possible level.
