Letter to the editor: Do what we can to protect children, especially unborn

By MICHAEL TO GJEFLE | Ontario

As I pondered your “Backtalk” last week and the current affairs of our nation, the staggering figure of 45 years of court-legalized abortion of over 60 million unborn children overwhelms my mind.

Let us not pretend to talk about protecting children when we look the other way at the brutal abortion business. According to lifenews.com, Planned Parenthood, which specializes in abortion (over 320,000 last year), had a record income of $1.46 billion last year.

I wonder if someone out there could tell us how much of that money found its way into their own political candidates’ pockets and campaigns? I wince as I hear people defending bulging wolf populations, yet ignore innocent unborn children who cannot defend themselves.

This year is an election year once again. Many run under pro-life platforms, yet do little or nothing to support legislation to prohibit sale of body parts of aborted children. Oh, may each of us do what we can to protect children in Wisconsin and America, especially those yet unborn.
