More inspections for abortion clinics

Reading The Herald-Dispatch one day, I noticed the abortion group WV Free was attacking Attorney General Mr. Morrisey under false pretenses, saying he's undermining a woman's right to an abortion.

That's ridiculous. Mr. Morrisey can't change laws, only enforce them! Their campaign against Mr. Morrisey is a total distortion of the truth. However, you expect that from a group who makes its monies from the blood of the preborn.

WV Free's campaign is simple: harass and try to intimidate Mr. Morrisey to not inspect these abortion facilities.

Just recently a Charleston abortionist by the name of Rodney Stephens was sued for allegedly leaving the baby's head in the womb and proceeded with the abortion against the patient's wishes.

In May, abortionist Kermit Gosnell was sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of live-born babies in his "house of horrors' abortion facility in Philadelphia.

I think the majority would agree with Mr. Morrisey that these abortion clinics need to be inspected periodically.

Finger should be pointed at GOP

A writer whose letter appeared in the Oct. 19 Voice of the People says GOP is not to blame for shutdown.

Then can he explain why all of the Democrats in the House and Senate voted to end the shutdown as well as some sane Republicans, while all those who voted to let the government default on its debts and keep the shutdown going were Republicans?

Higher premiums will be Dems' fault

The Democrats did the Republicans a great favor in standing firm on Obamacare. Here's why. By the first of the year when everyone has to have insurance and the premiums have gone way up, you can blame the Democrats and Obama for the loss of jobs and higher premiums. They are the ones who wanted Obamacare in the first place. One Democrat said it's a train wreck waiting to happen. For sure it's a job killer, as any company who works people over 30 hours has to have insurance for them, meaning they will cut hours or hire part-time employees.

When this happens you can't blame the Republicans, as none voted for Obamacare.
