I congratulate the Columbia Flier for running the opinion piece by Maria Santo in its Feb. 28 edition. Murder is not condoned by civilized societies; abortion should be illegal. Ms. Santo should be lauded for courageously and clearly articulating what many people in this county feel, but are not given full opportunity in the media to express. That is — as well-intentioned members of a compassionate society, we must stop deluding ourselves with intellectual dishonesty and faulty reasoning that abortion is a just solution for unwanted pregnancies. There is no longer any "medical cover" to justify this tragic act.
