To the editor:

I just read in the very last paragraph of an article in the June 2 Wisconsin State Journal, “Walker ready to sign 20-week abortion bill,” this statistic for 2013: “89 of 6,500 abortions were performed after 20 weeks.” A mere 89 little people were killed after 20 weeks and the rest were younger. No big deal!

It’s sickening to see the apathy of a once-great nation in regard to standards of living. Who are we to judge which is more important, the life of the child or of the mother?

I thank God for the wonderful people we have in our Wisconsin Legislature who have the courage to ignore the callous and selfish excuses people make to promote the horrific violence that continues every day in Planned Parenthoods across the country. If only we could save the other 6,411.

Jane Tarrell, Highland
