Sun needs to present both sides of abortion debate

Planned Parenthood

On Sunday, January 27, The Baltimore Sun printed an article about Planned Parenthood that was, of course, pro-abortion in slant ("Safe, legal abortion for 40 years"). In all fairness, there should have been space devoted to a pro-life article as well, especially in light of the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. But you chose to ignore the more than 600,000 people who Marched for Life on Friday, January 25. And the countless others who couldn't be at the march but were there in spirit, like myself.

The reason you are bleeding circulation numbers is that you only present one point of view. Your motto "Light for All" should be revised to "Light for Some."

Until you get serious about presenting both points of view on abortion and other issues, you are wasting your time calling my household to try to sell subscriptions.
