Letter: Syria not the only site of atrocities
By William Von Holtum, Worthington Our government talks about the atrocities going on Syria, and pictures are shown on TV. I wish they would show the body parts of the babies in an abortion clinic. In America, we pass a law saying it is legal to murder — that we have this right....

Letter: America is reaping what it has sown with abortion
After abortion, the most disturbing trend in America is the teaching of micro-evolution (really bad science) in public schools. There is a connection between the two. When man is put on the same level as animals, population control becomes "moral." If we must have abortion, let us...

Letter: Legislator lends support to pro-life initiatives
During a recent House floor debate on health and human services legislation, I supported a number of initiatives that support the unborn. These were common sense pro-life proposals, and I was pleased they were brought forward for a House floor vote. Because abortion facilities are...

Letter: Guns not responsible for the greatest case of murder
In the Feb. 5 issue of the Daily Globe, I read that Bill Ingebrigtsen believes that "the two greatest mass murders in our country were not committed with guns." The greatest mass murders are happening yet yearly, and daily. Abortion is mass murder. Fetuses are alive and living tissue;...

Letter: Taking personal responsibility is critical
I received in the mail a letter that had no return address and was signed "from a grandmother who prays for her granddaughters." She was responding to my letter to the called "A contrast." Those who are fortunate to have a grandmother have a special place in their hearts for them....

Letter: A contrast between dollars saved and wasted
Planned Parenthood Federation of America Inc.'s annual report ending June 30, 2010, shows a total revenue of $1,048,200,000. Of that total, $487,400,000 -- or 46.5 percent -- of its total income is from government grants and reimbursements. In 2010, here in Minnesota, taxpayers...

Letter: Abortion data should spark outrage
The brutal and horrific school shooting in Connecticut where 26 people were killed has outraged the public and our nations leaders to such an extent that, in 2013, we may see legislation regarding gun control that has never been thought possible. Businesses have stopped selling...

Letter: Still sad for Sandy Hook victims - and countless others
Whenever I read the paper of watch TV, Sandy Hook Elementary hits me as bad as when it happened -- and to think about the poor parents and what they are going through. The president and our leaders talk about doing something about it, as they should. We can only think when those...

Letter: A case of 'double-mindedness'
I don't get it. I hear President Obama and others mourning the death of the children that were killed in Connecticut, as they should. They are asking the taxpayers to pay for more security so that children will be safe. Some of these same people, however, are wanting us to kill hundreds...

Letter: Unseen killings may be the worst of all
The killing of the kids and adults in Connecticut was terrible. I wonder what God thinks. The killing of 1.2 million babies in the womb every year is terrible. I wonder what God thinks? I wonder which of these killings God thinks is worse? We as humans probably think the Connecticut...

Letter: Forget about gun control - stop abortion
Members of Congress and state legislators who made it illegal to defend oneself when they made gun-free zones, as well as those who condone this, have blood on their hands. But nothing is said by the mainstream media about the more than 20,000 unborn babies aborted each day. Since...

Letter: Biden's comments on abortion 'disengenous'
Eight years ago, when John Kerry was the Democratic Party's candidate for president, he stated that as a Catholic he was personally opposed to abortion but that he was "pro-choice" because imposing his view on the issue upon others would constitute a violation of the concept of "separation...

Letter: Letter writer wrong on MCCL voter guide

Letter: More to stopping abortion than voting pro-life
For 40 years, we have supported Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life and other anti-abortion groups. What have we accomplished? I just read information that said no president or elected official can change Roe vs. Wade. Because the Supreme Court enacted Roe vs. Wade, it has to reverse...

Letter: Pro-life issues have not been brought forth enough
I know we are all aware of the brash television ads either praising or attacking the candidates. One topic seems to be missing in those ads -- the subject of abortion. Stop and think about that. Since the 1995 Doe vs. Gomez court decision, which instituted tax-refund funding of...
