MY FATHER once told his four daughters that his worst enemy could walk through the front door and he would get up out of his chair and stride across the room to greet him."Everyone who comes into my home will feel welcome here," he said.My father had a chance to live up to that promise when the man who ruined his career and caused us to lose the dream house my father built came to visit.My sisters and I held our breath and watched, but saw no sign of anger or bitterness in my father's hospitality.

After a morning Mass calling attention to "every unborn child in America," Cardinal William H. Keeler led more than 700 abortion opponents in a march from St. Alphonsus Roman Catholic Church several blocks north to the Planned Parenthood office on Howard Street. There, the group sang and prayed for people affected by abortion: mothers, fathers, doctors and staff, and the unborn. Across the street, about 100 abortion-rights supporters staged an equally peaceful demonstration, holding "Pro Choice" and "Keep Abortion Legal" signs and singing "We Shall Overcome."

An absolute right to privacy in health care is enshrined in the oath all medical professionals must take. Providers understand they cannot effectively treat a patient if that patient cannot trust that his or her medical information will remain confidential. Certain types of insurance communications can inadvertently compromise medical privacy, such as the Explanation of Benefits (EOB) sent to policy-holders whenever an insurance policy is used by a family member. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)

Responding to scores of faxes sent by Planned Parenthood of Maryland about his position on abortion, a spokesman for Martin O'Malley said yesterday that the mayor is "pro-choice" and supports the state's laws on the issue. Officials at Planned Parenthood said they sent 175 letters to the mayor this week, asking O'Malley to state his position on abortion. They said because he is a possible gubernatorial candidate in this year's election, he should be willing to state his position on a prominent statewide and national issue.

You would think legislators would be embarrassed to make the kind of remarks that peppered a recent House of Delegates hearing on a bill designed to speed the process of adoption for Maryland children whose biological parents cannot or will not provide them with a home."

YOU'VE GOT to admire the moxie of John Lofton. The guy doesn't even shy away from the word theocracy. I remember Lofton mainly from his 15-year stint on WJZ-TV's Square Off, which was arguably the best, and definitely the most contentious, public affairs program to appear on local airwaves. Lofton was usually there giving - quite cogently and eloquently, I might add - the conservative take on topics of the day. These days, Lofton - who calls himself "a recovering Republican" - is the co-host with 2004 Constitution Party presidential candidate Michael Peroutka of the radio show American View.

Reigning NFL MVP Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings has been criticized for his decision to play in Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers despite the fact that a son - that he had only recently learned existed - had died of head injuries consistent with child abuse. Mr. Peterson, a running back known for his personal and professional toughness, said he never thought about not playing, and while some commentators criticized the decision, his teammates and fellow athletes rallied to his side, saying the man should be permitted to seek whatever solace he could at such a time.

I agree with Ingrid Krause's letter regarding pregnancy center agendas ( "Pregnancy centers should not hide agenda," July 29). However, they should also not hide results. Based on results and truth in advertising, Planned Parenthood should change the name of its centers to "Preventive Parenthood Centers. " Those centers help more than 90 percent of pregnant clients choose not to become parents (abortion), and Planned Parenthood reproductive services are oriented toward preventing their clients from becoming parents (contraception)

Regarding letter writer Laura Jones claim that Planned Parenthood employs deceptive advertising, I feel compelled to address the importance of Planned Parenthood and its name ("Planned Parenthood's deceptive advertising," July 13). Planned Parenthood stands for the right of all families to plan when and how they choose to become parents. Planned Parenthood provides information about birth control, but also provides necessary health care services at affordable prices, such as annual gynecological exams, cancer screenings, vaccines, and sexually transmitted infection testing and treatment.

Your recent editorial spoke about a new "truth-in-advertising" law requiring pregnancy centers to post signage regarding a specific service they will not provide, namely abortion ("Signs of abortion rights," July 11). When was the last time you promoted your business by stating the services you will not provide? Ironically, Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider, is not required to explicitly state that it provides abortion services. Its name implies that it helps people become parents, but its practice is to prevent parenthood, either through contraception or through abortion.

As a longtime supporter of Planned Parenthood, I wholeheartedly disagree with letter writer Gary Gamber's view ("Shut Planned Parenthood," May 31). At this time in our community when health care facilities are shutting their doors, it is more important than ever to keep the doors to Planned Parenthood of Maryland open. Over 185,000 Maryland women are without health insurance. For many of these women and for their families, Planned Parenthood is the one health care provider they see a year.

The Lucky Ones, by Rachel Cusk. Fourth Estate. 240 pages. $24.95. The naked truth about parenthood -- stripped of all its pleasures and precious moments -- isn't pretty. In this haunting new work, British talent Rachel Cusk (winner of the Whitbread First Novel Award) lays bare the lives of new mothers, fathers and grandparents. Billed as a novel, the book is more a collection of short stories -- loosely linked by a few forlorn characters and the overriding themes of isolation, anxiety and strained relationships.

The most happening act on MTV right now isn't Madonna or Prince or the King of Pop, it's not a rocker or a rapper or a dancing diva. It's this manic street preacher who's pacing around the wreckage of a post-urban landscape, ranting about the NEA, pious rock stars, cocaine, unlimited room service and "Cindy Crawford eating Eskimo pies naked on the roof of the Empire State Building."He's talking fast, he's talking furious, he's fully strapped with a loaded clip of take-no-prisoners opinions.

Facing a year of financial trouble that started with a national controversy over dropping monetary support for Planned Parenthood, Komen Maryland told its donors on Friday that the organization is $1 million short of reaching its current fundraising goal. Brittany Fowler, spokeswoman for the Maryland affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, said cancer patients and survivors in the state could lose services, such as prepared meals, breast exams and aqua therapy, if the organization misses its local $3.1 million target by the end of the current fundraising year, which closes March 31, 2013.
