Your Opinion: End funding for Planned Parenthood

Dear Editor:

And all who believe it is time for fiscal responsibility in Washington, D.C.:

Our newly elected legislators have promised they will stop the out-of-control spending and cut unnecessary programs from the federal budget.

In light of the latest revelation of what that wicked organization, Planned Parenthood, is doing I submit that totally defunding PPFA is an excellent place to begin the cutting. I realize the $360 million they receive is but “a drop in the bucket” considering the amount of the deficit but it would be a start. In my opinion, PPFA should not be receiving one dime of taxpayers money to be used to fund their evil deeds.

Abortion is in direct defiance of the sixth commandment, thou shalt not kill. It is nothing less than killing of innocent life. I say defund PPFA now. Perhaps a letter writing campaign by all who feel as I do to our Missouri legislators would open some eyes.

Issue-oriented letters to the editor in response to this or about other local topics are welcome. All letters should be limited to 400 words. The author's name must appear with the letter, and the name, address and phone number provided for verification. Letters that cannot be verified by telephone will not be published.
