Letters Words inadequate to express thanks
To the editor:
I wish to express my thanks and gratitude for the human love and compassion I received after a fall from my bicycle on June 19 about 1/2 mile from my home on University Road north of Vermillion. Neighbors were notified by a passing motorist from Rock Rapids, IA, driving along just minutes after the accident occurred. Jennifer and Ryan Cogle took me and my bicycle to their home, put ice packs on my eye and leg, cleaned and bandaged my left, bloody hand, kept me talking to them for two hours after the accident, and took me to my home less than 1/4 mile away. Such immediate and excellent care has allowed me to see improvement daily. I am very fortunate to have no broken bones and no vision impairment. Dr. Gregory replaced the left lens in my glasses. Dr. Dendinger assured me of no broken bones and that bruises and contusions will take 2-3 weeks but that I will heal. Words are inadequate to express my gratitude and thanks to be living in the Midwest and especially in the Vermillion-Dalesburg community.

Planned Parenthood committing genocide
To the editor:
"Only heartless zealots could look at the hungry, thirsty, exhausted women and children who pour across the Albanian border and see an opportunity for population control." That statement was made by Steven Mosher, president of Population Research Institute, an organization committed to exposing human rights abuses and elevating the dignity and respect of the individual human person.
The "heartless zealots" Mr. Mosher was referring to is the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), the world's largest promoter of abortion. The IPPF is directly responsible for the deaths of literally tens of millions of innocent unborn children around the world.
Now the IPPF has joined with the pro-abortion United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) by sending deadly abortion causing drugs to the Kosovar refugees.
Most seriously, reports Mosher, is the fact the IPPF and UNFPA are engaged in a covert population control campaign against the Kosovars. Dr. Enza Ferrara, who works at a refugee camp in Shkodra, Albania, confirmed that the pro-abortion agenda is to prevent the increase of Kosovars. Another doctor complained that while the refugees are suffering from starvation, abortion drugs are being sent to the camps in abundance.
Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic may be loosing the war with NATO, but his goal of genocide against the Kosovars continues through UNFPA and Planned Parenthood.
