LETTER: Do we care enough to please God?
To the Editor: It appears we are starting to realize that aborting an unborn baby is wrong. For the first time in a national survey, more people consider themselves pro-life, or against abortion. Also, in South Dakota, the Planned Parenthood clinic in Rapid City will close on De...

LETTER: HB1162 offensive to women of all backgrounds
