  • The Catholic Church isn't playing politics

    Unclear if fetal deaths occurred in Md., Cecil prosecutor says
    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...

    Republicans have morality upside down. They're condemning gay marriage, abortion, access to contraception, and the wall separating church and state. But the moral crisis in America isn't a breakdown in private morality. It's a breakdown in public...
  • Women find 'Doonesbury' strip on abortion right on the mark

    Letter writer John Rutkowski has a right to his views, but his comments on Gary Trudeau's comic strip were infuriating and disgusting ("Idiotic 'Doonesbury' strip on abortion insults readers," March 20). First, Mr. Trudeau's comic strips on the Texas...
  • Moral high ground in abortion debate is debatable

    Readers such as John Rutkowski must not understand that Garry Trudeau's series on the forced ultra-sound law for women seeking abortion is no attempt at being funny ("Idiotic 'Doonesbury' strip on abortion insults readers," March 20). "Comic" strip is a...

    150 flood Harford courthouse sidewalk, protest federal health mandate
    Close to 150 people protested the federal Health and Human Services mandate Friday outside the Harford County Circuit Courthouse in Bel Air — three times the number event coordinators originally projected. People driving and walking down Main...
  • Mandatory contraceptive coverage is tyranny

    In his March 22 op-ed piece ("Why I chose Sandra Fluke") Rep. Elijah Cummings mistakenly identifies a freedom issue as awomen's healthissue. For decades employees have been able to save money on health insurance costs by opting out of certain coverages....
  • Abortion protesters rewarded for disruptive behavior

    The article "Law, order, free speech" (March 25) prompts this response: What is distressing to this reader is that a group of religious fanatics who oppose abortion are awarded (by a federal Judge) a "settlement" of $385,000 for their despicable behavior....
  • Freedom of speech goes for abortion protesters, too

    I want to thank The Sun for running on page one last Sunday the story about the abortion protesters' arrest in Harford County in 2008 ("State trooper wanted protesters to 'rot,'" March 24). We have many freedoms being eroded daily by misguided police...
