Interestingly, Iowa Democrats, who usually scream loudly for “separation of church and state,” staged their own prayer vigil beseeching the Almighty to defend the right of women to end the lives of their preborn children.

“Abortions drop 30% in Iowa in 5-year span.”

This was yesterday’s headline in the Des Moines Register. They were reporting on the Iowa Board of Medicine’s upcoming hearing on the use of webcam abortions in Iowa.

This headline confirms Quiner’s Diner premise that the youthful pro life generation is beating the aging Marxist-feminist human abortion crowd. That’s the story: young Iowa women are increasingly rejecting Planned Parenthoods seductive advocacy for human abortion.

The Iowa Senate, controlled by Democrats, rejected the nominee with a shameless smear campaign grounded in deceit and disinformation. Undeterred, Governor Terry Branstad has put forth the name of another faithful Catholic to serve on the Board of Medicine: Monsignor Frank Bognanno …

By Tom Quiner Dishonest Iowa Democrats smear a good woman. This was the Quiner’s Diner post on April 13th. The Des Moines Register picked it up and ran it without changing a word. The Dubuque Telegraph Herald ran with it. I was asked to be a guest on a Northern Iowa talk radio show to…

By Tom Quiner Iowa offers telemed abortions. In contradiction to state law, abortions are administered via computer screen by doctors at remote locations. The Attorney General for the State of Iowa, a Democrat, didn’t rule on the case. He pawned it off to a County Attorney. The Democratic Party didn’t raise a peep. So Iowa…
