The battle over respect for pre-born life in the Waco Tribune-Herald
The editorial page of the Waco Tribune-Herald. From the debates over the launch of Planned Parenthood's abortion business in 1994 to the Girl Scout cookie boycott in 2004 and to the move to a new $4.3 million abortion facility in 2017, defenders and opponents of the shedding of innocent blood have battled on the editorial page of the Waco Tribune-Herald. On this page, you will find the major editorials and letters to the editor of this continuing battle over the scar of abortion in Waco and Central Texas. You are encouraged to send your letter to the editor submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org and your full editorials to email@example.com. The suggested length for letters to the editor is 100 to 300 words. Editorials are from 500 to 800 words. Exceptions are made for abortion defenders whose letters can run as high as 1500 words. The Waco Tribune-Herald is now owned by Warren Buffett through his Brookshire Hathaway corporation. The Warren Buffett family is one of the top five donors to Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry worldwide. So, the Waco Trib playing field is not level. However, we battle on.
