Helpline assists women
Dear Editor, On Saturday, Sept. 5 I competed in the St. Croix Valley Sprint Triathlon in Hudson. I swam, biked and ran in loving memory of my daughter Aubrey who died 19 years ago on Sept. 5, 1990. Aubrey died at the Meadowbrook Clinic in Minneapolis during my abortion. It was the...

Letter: Abortion is biggest issue
Dear Editor, I recently read a letter to the editor of a Christian newspaper stating that too many letters had been published about abortion before the election, and, that "other issues" should have been given equal status. I instantly recalled the words of a priest I heard on EWIN,...

Letter: Not 'just' an issue
Abortion -- "just another issue" in regard to Catholic social concerns? Let's tell it like it is; it is murder and should be given top priority. How did the word abortion, in our nation's churches, become so diluted that thousands of Catholics vote for pro-death politicians?

Letter: Blasts single issue views
Dear Editor The Darla Meyer letter (Star-Observer, July 17) is twisting words to suit her own narrow view. Opinions and manipulations of facts like this belong on the Fox News Channel. Neither McCain nor Obama said they "want to exterminate" anyone -- in fact, they are both adamantly...

Letter: Thoughts on abortion
The ultimate form of child abuse is infanticide. Prettifying the gruesome procedure by a rhetorical camouflage of "choice" is purposefully intended to anesthetize guilt. The Catholic Church has stood firm in a staunch defense of millions of voiceless victims. Yet there are agitators...

Letter: Abortion isn't good change
Change -- the word that, of late, resounds in the air long after the word is spoken. Change, change to what? Should we intensify our efforts to make this one nation for all, except for the pre-born and those we would euthanize? Our health care system, does it need change, and, whom...
