Wesley J. Smith Predicts Bioethics News for 2010; I Summarize.

You can catch the noisy predictions here. But let me summarize it for you:

The US is going to hell in a handbasket. Abortion will be required! Human stem cells will be murdered! Aliens will be cared for! Montana (aid in dying case) will be upheld! Connecticut (similar case) will fail. The horrors of Obamacare will not yet show themselves but we will all fear for our lives! Rationing is coming! Hippocratic medicine is dying! Pharmacists and others in the medical profession will lose their conscience protections! Related court cases will sky-rocket and "activist judges" will inadvertently damn providers to hell for killing people (with the pill)! Fortunately, he says, the Freedom of Choice Act won't pass but don't think the "culture of death" won't work double time to kill every last one of "us!"

What the purpose of this exercise is, I'd be loathe to surmise. But it does rile the troops. Which is exactly what WJS is good at. Scaring the bejesus out of the lesser informed. If he can appeal to one's self-righteous desire to impose their beliefs on the whole of society, expect him to take the chance.
