We must learn from enquiries elsewhere

Dear Madam, - Fermanagh should be a fracking-free zone. Thanks to its ongoing informative coverage of this vital topic, readers of The Impartial Reporter are being constantly made aware of the fact and fiction surrounding this proposed vile rape of the countryside. We are by now familiar with the fracking method of extracting otherwise unavailable natural gas by the pumping of compressed water, sand and chemicals into fissures or cracks in shale rock.

Abortion is fundamental to all other rights to life

Dear Madam, - In her interesting article about life in Washington and her continuing development and education as a person, in the Impartial Reporter 17.07.14, Kylie Noble states the following as a guiding principle: “What I cannot accept is politics founded upon oppression and inequality ----”. I think that most people would find this statement of principle commendable.

More efforts needed to stop gambling addiction

Dear Madam, - I wonder how many parents read or paid any heed to the brilliant letter on May 29, “Scourge is profiting from the young and vulnerable”. I want to reiterate every word in that letter. If you are a parent I would urge you to please look it up on the internet.
