Watch for YourTurn normally scheduled to air at the end of Heartland News at Noon on Mondays and Fridays, at the end of Heartland News at 10:00 on Saturday nights, and following The Breakfast Show on Sunday mornings.
Paula Fowler from Piedmont, Missouri:
“I am appalled at the government’s new breast cancer guidelines…I cannot believe it…the study showed only one of 1,900 women would be saved by doing a self exam. I AM THE ONE IN 1,900! I found my cancer myself…this is taking a giant step backwards! We need to write our senators and representatives to express our concern.”
M.L. Anderson from Poplar Bluff, Missouri:
“Insurance companies need more competition not government control…we have lost so many of our freedoms in the past few years. The government is getting bigger and bigger. Soon it will be so big that we will not have any freedoms left. It makes me angry that everyone will have to buy health insurance whether they want it or not.”
Bob Knope from Carbondale, Illinois:
“Is our health really the governments concern? The government tells us that cigarettes and other tobacco products will kill us, yet they allow it to be sold. As a 30 year, two packs a day ex-smoker, I switched to e-cigarettes five months ago and I don’t need my government to tell me how much better I feel.”
Rod Lipe from Cape Girardeau:
“I am a veteran of Vietnam and while war is never a win situation for any country involved, it is needed in order to promote democracy…the Fort Hood incident was murder…Major Hasan should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law as a murderer and terrorist and be executed as soon as possible.”
