Letter to the Editor Certified Seed- a good bean I Urges Writing Against Abortion Dear Editor : I read in your February 8 edition of the hearings scheduled for sometime in March on Anti-Abortion Amendments to the Constitution of the United States. Believing that abortion is definitely murder, I have today written my congressmen urging their support of any amendment which would protect those unborn human beings who cannot protect themselves. I plan to ask at least three of my friends to also take the time to write letters to their congressmen, urging support for such an amendment. If each of us wrote letters and then asked three of our friends to also write letters, the support for such an amendment would be overwhelming. Perhaps my letter might even save a life. Senate Office Building or House Office Building in Washington, D.C. are easy addresses to remember, and letters do not have to be fancy, only written.
