Pro-lifers played the long game

That beautiful photo of the baby on your cover was worth the subscription price for the entire year. The angels in heaven must be rejoicing, too.
     —Bill Bouknight / Columbia, S.C.

I am, of course, enthusiastic about the lead article on the overturning of Roe v. Wade, but the entire issue was filled with the kind of detailed, behind-the-news looks at many issues that I came to expect of WORLD back in the 1990s.
    —Ken Lockridge / Charles Town, W. Va.

Plain truth

Kim Henderson’s article gave a wonderful insight into the Amish belief system. It brought me joy to read about the desire of those who have left the Amish life to help those still clinging to the Amish culture to know the full truth of the saving grace of Jesus.
     —Debbie Shultz / Baltimore, Md.

My wife and I left the Amish church 50 years ago. We were not constrained by fear of shunning, nor threatened with damnation for leaving. We continue to have many friends and relatives among the Amish and maintain excellent relationships with them.
    —Lester Troyer / Stone Lake, Wis.

It is sad to say that Kim Henderson’s article is true for a segment of the Amish. But as members of the Amish church, our experience is different. As a minister, I preach assurance of salvation by grace through faith resulting in fruit and works.
    —Timothy Yoder / Evart, Mich.

I’m Amish. I accepted Jesus as my Savior at age 12. Our seven children are all born again. And I was reading your article with my LED headlamp on so I don’t disturb my sleeping husband.
    —Anna Yoder / Evart, Mich.

Higher and higher

Two and a half years ago, we were energy independent and selling energy instead of buying it. The destruction of our energy independence not only harms our economy but also places our country at greater risk of foreign attacks.
    —Steve Conway / Edwardsville, Ill.

Campaigning in a changing America

Christopher Nicholas seems to be just another paid consultant urging compromise and whatever else is necessary to secure a seat at the table with other professional politicians. When will ­someone, anyone, in GOP leadership stand up for what is right and holy, resisting evil regardless of the cost?
    —Michael Small / Gilbertville, Mass.

Allies against city violence

The answer to surging urban violence and the many other problems that plague our inner cities is quite simple: faith and fatherhood.
    —Tom Hagedorn / Cincinnati, Ohio

A blunt challenge

The need for the church to support the start of Christian schools across America is huge. I have prayed that God would raise up Christians who would start scholarship funds so that we no longer have to rely on government-sanctioned funding programs.
    —Karen J. Elliott / Eustis, Fla.

Correction

Lyndon Azcuna earns $58,560 a year in his full-time role as executive ­director of LifePlan (“Building stronger families,” July 30).

Clarification

A razor-thin majority of lawmakers in the U.S. Senate can stop radical pro-abortion legislation, but not all of those senators are pro-life (“Pro-life education pioneer,” Aug. 13).
