Letters to the Editor

Clinton Wiles
After reading the commentary by Linda Terrell (”Changes at DHS threaten progress,” July 4, Oklahoma Gazette), I located House Bill 2300 as passed and found disturbing issues that look like business as usual.

A report issued last week by the Center for Reproductive Rights, or CRR, gives the Sooner State low marks for abortion rights, noting a handful of pro-life bills passed by legislators in recent years.
