Betty Menholt and Sharon Fritz letter: The outrage is here on American soil

In Sunday's Forum (July 20), Diane Gerst's letter states that "based on false information," the Bush administration went to war against Iraq. "Americans die and continue to die. Iraqi women, men and children died and continue to die, based on false information."

We want to add, that right here on U.S. soil, we have humans being tortured, used in experiments, and sometimes poisoned. Most are dismembered. They suffer excruciating pain. All of them die. Some are sold for parts, others are dumped into medical waste. They are unborn children. Ninety-eight percent of the time, they are killed for convenience.

Over 4,000 are killed each day in the United States. About 1,200 are killed right here in the middle of downtown Fargo every year. This is happening to these people "based on false information" too.

The woman who started the slaughter, (through Roe V Wade, Supreme Court, 1973) Norma McCorvey, aka Jane Roe, has come forward and told the world that she had lied about being raped. She has asked that the ruling be reversed.

Can anyone understand this? This killing of innocent people is a cancer in out society. When will it be stopped? Where is the public outcry for unborn U.S. citizens?
