Your Sunday article about the doubling in the number of homeless students mentioned that Baltimore City had the largest number of homeless students in the state ("Homeless student numbers growing," Jan. 22). The next day, Diana Schaub's commentary decried the effect of abortions on Baltimore City's population ("Abortion and population," Jan. 23).
I found it quite telling that Ms. Schaub chose to quote the 1959 play "A Raisin in the Sun." She obviously still believes we live in the same world as 1959. We are not.
She chose to mention how Baltimore City's poverty rate has remained steady at about 20 percent, despite the increase in abortions. Would she rather abortions cease so the city's poverty rate can hit 30 percent or 35 percent?
