  • Archbishop Jackels said in a pastoral letter that the Iowa Supreme Court’s decision to strike down a three-day waiting period before an abortion can take place is “sad and bad.” Jackels wrote his letter on June 29, 2018. This ruling “devalues the God-given sacredness of human life” and it facilitates a deadly attack on vulnerable children still in the womb, he wrote. (The Witness)
