LETTER: Trump deserves the same respect GOP gave Obama -- none
Linda Stanton, in her Dec. 21 letter, wants us to "move on" and accept a Donald Trump presidency. In defense of her position, she cites long...

LETTER: If you voted for Trump, you are complicit in a litany of wrongdoing

LETTER: Title X funding does not pay for abortion care
I would love to know what state Rep. Kelly Fenton has against annual pelvic exams, pap tests, breast cancer screening, screening and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV, testing for diabetes, hypertension, anemia, and other chronic health problems, as well as...

LETTER: How will Republicans enforce which bathrooms are used by transgenders?
Shame on Kelly Fenton for co-sponsoring House File 3395, a bill which would require transgender people to use the bathroom associated with their gender assignment at birth. The bill states: "A person's sex is either male or female as biologically defined." Really? Where does that...

LETTER: Open our doors and hearts to those seeking freedoms we cherish
I can understand why people are frightened, following the brutal terrorist attacks in Paris. What I cannot condone, however, is pandering to those fears by politicians like Rep. Fenton and House Speaker Daudt calling for a moratorium on Syrian refugees entering this country, refugees...

LETTER: Planned Parenthood videos were spliced
Well, no, I do not admit that, “Planned Parenthood is deeply involved in the sale of fetal tissue,” for the simple reason that Planned Parenthood does no such thing. Another letter writer claims to have viewed nine hours of videos which were edited, in his words, to provide...

LETTER: Aid to the needy is ethical, and economically beneficial
Thank you to Caitlin Hurley for a passionate and heartfelt defense of welfare recipients; in truth, welfare has not existed since 1996, when it was replaced with TANF, Temporary Assistance For Needy Families, with an emphasis on the “Temporary.” Here in Minnesota, despite claims...

Viewpoint: Economy is better with unions than without them
The Employee Free Choice Act does not take away employees' rights to a secret ballot. Michele Bachmann ("Unions use card check to force you to think again," Viewpoint, Bulletin, March 18) is wrong. Rather than taking away employees' rights, EFCA would give employees the choice...

Viewpoint: A response to a writer's challenge
Steve Lagoon (Viewpoint, Dec. 10) challenges me to show evidence that the Illinois bill Barack Obama opposed would have required resuscitative medical treatment for pre-viable fetuses, as opposed to simple palliative care.

Letter: Tired of the name-calling
As I said previously, I'm really tired of the "abortion debate." But I'm also tired of name-calling, which Mr. St. Martin engages in (again) when he refers to Ms. Denn as "one of Woodbury's most vocal abortion advocates" (Viewpoint, Dec. 3). "Pro-life" is such a warm fuzzy term...

Viewpoint: Lagoon responds to critics of abortion Viewpoint

Letter: Tinklenberg is who we need
When a candidate for office cannot withstand scrutiny of his or her positions on the issues, that candidate often resorts to smears and innuendo, painting the opposition as "the other," somehow less American, less patriotic, less deserving of a voice in the Democratic process. I...
