I would like to commend the Howard County Times and the Baltimore Sun for having the courage to publish the OpEd piece by Maria Santo, "Murder is not condoned by civilized societies; abortion should be illegal," which appeared in the Feb. 28 print edition. Abortion is a sensitive topic and Ms Santo presented a calm, compassionate, yet forceful defense for life. Her eloquence presents a compelling challenge to our culture to step back and honestly recognize the tragedy of abortion for what it is: killing the innocent. It is ironic that as a society we can marshal resources, celebrities, and impassioned rhetoric in support of endangered animals and vegetation, yet be blind to the danger to the child in the womb. Thank you, Ms. Santo for your word — the Word of Truth.
