Family Research Council also has a site dedicated to helping concerned Americans learn how to take action to get our country on track after the recent Obamacare abomination.

Smith is a bioethics attorney, author and speaker, writer of the blog Secondhand Smoke at First Things, and writer/speaker of the podcast What It Means To Be Human, and a senior fellow of the Discovery Institute.
