Your Opinion: Double standard on taking lives

Your Opinion: Double standard on taking lives

April 23rd, 2013 by Ed Bode, Jefferson City in News

Dear Editor:

The nation responded timely and appropriately to the terrible terrorism in Connecticut and Massachusetts.

However, abortion (individual killing of the unborn) attracts almost no attention, even when close to home: recently released information for 2010 records 117 abortions by Cole County women and 363 by Boone County women; Kansas preliminary data for 2011 lists 3,857 abortions in Kansas by women from Missouri.
