Your editorial, “Murder, Inc.” (Editorial, Thursday), referred to “the abortion industry.” If there really is such a thing, why should we then not talk about the nursing, podiatry, lawn-care, barbering or manicuring industries? All medical practitioners - no matter their specialty - get paid for their services, whether by fees collected directly or by insurance companies or by charities.

Physicians who perform late-term abortions probably do charge more money than do those who perform abortions during, say, the first trimester. In much the same way, neurosurgeons charge more than do general physicians for stitching up minor cuts.

Gov. Kathleen Sebelius had and has vastly more on her plate than the issue of reproductive choice. She does not deserve criticism simply for standing up for the constitutional rights of women. That was just one small part of the job for which she was elected.
