    Cecil County's top prosecutor said Wednesday that he withdrew murder charges against two abortion doctors because he lacked definitive evidence that the fetuses at issue were terminated in Maryland. "We know what the doctors did. We just don't know where...
  • Which is the greater evil, abortion or war?

    John G. Edgemere's letter criticizing Rick Santorum for opposing abortion while being hawkish about the military is ridiculous ("Santorum's moral relativism should do well in S. Carolina," Jan. 17). If it's a matter of hypocrisy, then those who oppose war...
