Why Was Pope Francis Silent?

While the world reeled at the alleged comments Pope Francis recently made on homosexuality, it also noticed the pontiff's deafening silence on Ireland's now-lost abortion referendum.

Planned Parenthood Challenges Iowa Law

A lawsuit challenging the nation's most restrictive abortion law was filed in Iowa, a state that for years was largely left out of Republican efforts to overturn abortion protections and where the Democratic attorney general has refused to defend the law. If allowed to take effect, the law would ban most abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected, around the sixth week of pregnancy, a point when, abortion-rights groups say, many women don't know that they are pregnant.

Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 landmark decision which established that women have a constitutional right to an abortion, activists on both sides of the issue said. Read more...
