Next week on Faith on Trial: A discussion of Life issues

Dana Cody
Next week marks the anniversary of the evil Roe v. Wade decision which legalized abortion in all 50 states.  In recognition of this we will be discussing the status of right-to-life issues with one of our favorite guests, Dana Cody, executive director and chief legal counsel for the Life Legal Defense Foundation.

Dana has been championing the rights of women and the unborn for over twenty years. She started as a lay-counselor to women in crisis pregnancies, then fulfilled her passion to protect women and children victimized by abortion by obtaining her law degree from Western State University in 1993.
In 1996, she accepted an invitation to serve as a board member of Life Legal Defense Foundation. After leaving her consulting position she accepted the position as Life Legal’s Executive Director. Dana has also served as an adjunct professor at Trinity Law School in Santa Ana, California, having taught the course The Right to Life and the Law. She also served as a Judge Pro Tem for the Sacramento Superior Court.

Among the things we will be discussing will be the “Bubble Zone” case recently heard by the Supreme Court.  That case places a 35 foot zone of protection around abortion clinics where sidewalk counselors are forbidden. Also we will take up the Jahi McMath case involving end-of-life care for a young girl who was declared brain dead, and the case of a public school teacher who was fired for his pro-life views.

And … hopefully we’ll be visiting with a local student who will be attending Wednesday’s March for Life in Washington, D.C.

Join Deacon Mike Manno and co-host Gina Noll Tuesday at 9 a.m. (Central) on Iowa Catholic Radio, 1150 AM; 88.5 & 94.5 FM and streaming live on  The program will be re-broadcast Tuesday at 9 p.m.
