Reflections on the sad anniversary of Roe v. Wade

On January 22 we observe a sad anniversary, the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion in the United States. This is about as far away from “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” as articulated by Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence as one can get.

Bills introduced to “defund” abortion providers; eliminate regulation of guns

The Iowa legislative session began last week with the introduction of some bills of interest to the Iowa Catholic Conference and the Governor’s “Condition of the State” address.
