4:40 – Alabama Supreme Court Opinion Rules that “Child” Includes “Unborn Child”
Friday, in an 8-1 decision authored by Justice Tom Parker, the Alabama Supreme Court held that the word “child” in Alabama’s chemical-endangerment statute applies to the born and unborn. This decision follows a similar one handed down last year by the Alabama Supreme Court in Ankrom v. State, where Alabama’s highest court also ruled that the word “child” includes the “unborn child.” We talk to attorney Clarke Forsythe from Americans United for life about the impact of this ruling.

5:20 – Earth Day 2014: The Papal Edition
Pope Francis offered a homily at his inaugural Mass which centered on the need for the Church and its members to take up the vocation of “protector,” inspired by the example of St. Joseph, for all of humanity and for creation. It means protecting all creation, the beauty of the created world, as the Book of Genesis tells us and as Saint Francis of Assisi showed us. It means respecting each of God’s creatures and respecting the environment in which we live. The new Pontiff sees no conflict between protecting creation and the protection of each person. This Monday was Earth Day and today we talk to G. Tracy Mehan about Earth Day – The Papal Edition.
