Grad Student Charged with Punching Woman Holding Pro-Life Sign

A 30-year old graduate student attending the University of Iowa's Carver College was charged with assault after punching an elderly woman holding a pro-life sign in Iowa City, IA. 

Police say Man Chun John Ma, from Hong Kong, struck the 78-year old in the back and caused bodily injury. Ma admitted that he was wrong to strike the woman, but that he thought opposing abortion was "strange." 

Ma was reportedly released from jail the same evening--
