Under the shield of Griswold, a moral breakdown in our culture began, setting the stage for later court decisions that decriminalized the killing of children through abortion and opened the door for children to engage in sexual activity without their parents' knowledge.
Life begins at fertilization - period. When a human egg and a human sperm join, a new individual with his or her own unique DNA is created.
This is a fact that Ms. Tucker overlooks when she lauds the so-called morning-after pill.
Protecting innocent, pre-born children from death by abortion - surgical or chemical - is a noble act and should be hailed as such.
That is why heroic individuals such as Mr. Sedlak will continue to do what they do until no more babies die under the banner of "choice."

Hecht's knew needs of area's middle class
I would argue that Hecht's was one of the few retail stores that knew well the needs of its middle-class Baltimore client base and provided service and value to this market throughout its lengthy local career ("Losing its place in retail world," July 30).
Hecht's was one of the few places that you could count on when buying your first party dress as well as that special outfit for your retirement party.
Many of us are truly sad to see this familiar store disappear.
Neither "big box" stores nor high-end ones can replace it.
