Alabama now has the most restrictive abortion law in the country. What the new law – and others like it around the country – mean for the future of abortion rights.
Guest Host: Tom Gjelten
This week Pope Francis marks his fifth year as head of the Catholic Church. His impact has been huge, and controversial. New York Times columnist Ross Douthat explores his papacy in a new book, “To Change the Church: Pope Francis and the Future of Catholicism.”
Then, the diversity visa lottery has become one of President Trump’s favorite punching bags when it comes to immigration policy. But much of what he has said about it has been simply untrue. Tom is joined by an expert who helps separate fact from fiction and gets an account of a first-hand experience from a lottery winner.
