Greg Tollerud is completely off base in his letter “Fair and balanced not to be found in The Forum” (letter, July 22). No legitimate news source should give credence to the fraudulent and highly edited videos attacking Planned Parenthood.
The group who produced the video are extremists who have hounded women and doctors for years. One of the men is tied to abortion clinic bombings and the murder of a doctor who provided abortions. Organizations like this should never be considered a “news source” nor spark a “fair and balanced” article based on their efforts.
Our community experienced the harassment, intimidation and violence of groups like this in the early 1990s when the “Lambs of Christ” invaded Fargo and the clinic that provided abortions was bombed. We know the real agenda of organizations behind videos like these, and they have never been concerned with protecting the health and safety of women. Their mission is to ban abortion.
I applaud The Forum for not giving these extremists an ounce of ink.
