  • Nothing unique in Akin's nonsense

    Nothing unique in Akin's nonsense
    Rep. Todd Akin's fame — more accurately, his infamy — now reaches all the way to the Congo. There, Eve Ensler, the award-winning American author of “The Vagina Monologues” and herself a survivor of rape, wrote an open letter...
  • Lying in defense of extremist views is no virtue

    "If you want an abortion, you go to Planned Parenthood. And that's well over 90 percent of what Planned Parenthood does." — Sen. Jon Kyl, Republican of Arizona, April 8, 2011 "[The statistic Mr. Kyl used] was not intended to be a factual...
  • Planned Parenthood criticism well justified

    Given the dubious possibility that only 3 percent of Planned Parenthood's services are abortion-related, as Leonard Pitts claims ("Lying in defense of extremist views is no virtue," April 17), it does nothing to alter the fact that over 1 million...
  • A prescription for Rep. Harris

    Andy Harris purports to represent our district, which has, literally and figuratively, the Chesapeake Bay at its heart. Yet Mr. Harris votes against funds to stem the slow death of the bay by pollutants, and he voted to keep the Environmental Protection...
  • In praise of Planned Parenthood

  • Komen wrong to support Planned Parenthood

    I have to scratch my head why the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundationwas funding Planned Parenthood in the first place ("Komen's attack on abortion rights," Feb. 2). With some research suggesting an increased rate of breast cancer among those who...
  • GOP 'social issues' are deliberately crafted to distract voters

    The Republican sleight-of-hand machine is back in business ("Obama targets divisive issues," April 29). Instead of talking about the economy (for which they have no solution) or energy (no solution there, either) or global warming (GOP: "What's that"?),...
  • Reimer is right: 'Julia' is no a role-model

    Thank you to Susan Reimer for writing about the president's re-election campaign's fictional "Julia" ("Obama may wish he didn't know 'Julia,'" May 14). Ms. Reimer often writes about her own husband and while I don't know him, I get the impression that he...

    Maryland native at center of Komen controversy steps down
    The resignation of Maryland native Karen Handel from theSusan G. Komen for the Curefoundation on Tuesday could be a first step toward the organization's recovery from a week of negative headlines, comments and tweets. But crisis communications experts...
