It’s hot, humid, and beautiful in Philadelphia this morning.

I’m headed to Kansas City shortly to meet Bobby Schindler and attend the second half of this year’s National Right to Life Convention. Looking forward to hearing Wesley Smith, and potentially others if time allows.

Archbishop Joseph Naumann will be keynoting; his keynote at last month’s National Catholic Prayer Breakfast was good. Melissa Ohden, who keynoted our Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia dinner last year, will be speaking too. I am interested in hearing Roger Severino, Director of the Office for Civil Rights at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Under Trump, Severino’s Office for Civil Rights is attempting to protect the conscience rights of medical professionals in a new way.

But I’ll be in Kansas City mostly for meetings, and to catch up with Bobby Schindler before a few weeks of travel next month.
