NEXT week marks the 25th anniversary of the Supreme Court's infamous 7-2 decision that removed constitutional protection for unborn life. Far from being a settled issue, abortion on demand has spawned new controversies about life at all stages.In his radio address last Saturday, President Clinton denounced as ''morally unacceptable'' an announcement by a Chicago physicist to clone humans. He asked Congress to ban it.Let's apply to cloning the same logic the president uses on abortion, including the partial-birth variety: This should be an issue between a woman (or a man)

I would counter the headline on Maria Santo's criticism of pro-choice advocates ("Dishonesty underlies abortion law," March 5) with one of my own: "Extreme sanctimony underlies pro-life argument. " Anti-abortionists - please, can we call them what they really are? - can make a cogent argument for their cause, and I agree with them that "killing babies" is a crime. However, I find it ironic that the same folks who think it is reprehensible for a mother to abort a baby she can't afford, hasn't the skills to raise or simply can't abide how the child was conceived - rape, for instance - never offer any solutions to those problems.

The battles on Capitol Hill over Sonia Sotomayor and health care have convinced me that pro-life Americans should take a cue from a popular chick flick. A hit movie newly out on DVD recently proclaims a shocking truth to women who make excuses for the bad behavior of men they date. That fact is: If he lies, cheats and treats you disrespectfully, "he's just not that into you." The movie evokes cringes as one recognizes realistic scenes of bright women and men making humiliating mistakes and errors in judgment.

I read your article in The Sun entitled "Keep abortion safe and legal" (Jan. 27) by Jenny Black, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Maryland. I know that it was printed to acknowledge the 40th anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade decision. In the name of fairness, I am now respectfully requesting that you print a commentary from someone on the pro-life side of this issue. I would think more highly of your paper if you kept it fair and balanced, and if you presented both sides of a controversial issue such as abortion.

From: Vincent PerticoneCarroll County Right-to-LifeChairpersonBillboard CommitteeThe Carroll County Right-to-Life organization announces the placement of its newest educational pro-life billboard 3 miles south of Westminster, which is facing traffic on the left side of the road when driving toward Westminster.This new billboard shows an infant in diapers with the caption, "Kill her now, it's murder, kill her before birth, it's abortion."This second billboard for this Right-to-Life chapter in the last three months represents the committee's strategy in keeping before the public the truth of the humanity of the pre-born and the irrational nature of abortion as a "solution" to human problems and conditions.

Oil companies put squeeze on independentsAs the manager of an independent gas station, I can see where the gas price increases are leading us. The large companies are selling gas to us for more money than their stations are charging at the pump to their customers. Once we are put out of business, and I am fighting for my very livelihood right now, the consumer will be the big loser. Then the large gas companies will have the whole show to themselves and they will be able to raise the price of gas to any amount they want.

Another $17 million we can't affordIn an April 14 article about Carroll County growth -- read that "overbuilding" -- builder Richard L. Hull contends the county received $16.49 million in income from the builders in 1995 for 1,434 homes built.What Mr. Hull doesn't tell us is how will that approximately $17 million per year be absorbed? Government officials will tell anyone who wants to listen that it costs $1.22 in residential services for every $1 taken in taxes, which means taxes in this county will have to rise to outrageous levels so greedy builders can pocket yet more money without even a temporary curb on their indulgence.

Augusta, Maine. -- Not far from the domed statehouse of this capital city is a modest white-frame building that houses the Christian Civic League. Nothing about the architecture gives off a hint of its history. From this former outpost, Benjamin Bubar, anti-evolutionist, fundamentalist and author of ''The Devil Loose in Maine'' ran as the presidential candidate of the Prohibition Party. In 1976.Today, the Christian Civic League is run by a man from another generation of conservatives, Jasper Wyman.

Very UpsetI am very upset about Jennifer Weiss' April 20 letter, which suggests that women who are pro-life cannot possibly be feminists. Ms. Weiss is obviously pro-abortion, so how can she presume to speak for all women, especially those of us who believe in preserving life?Being pro-life and feminist are not mutually exclusive. Many pro-life women also believe in "feminist" strategy and improving the quality of life (hence the term "pro-life"), which includes equal pay for equal work, improving education, providing decent, affordable child care, equal rights and more effective and less expensive means of birth control.

One has to wonder about the mental acuity of a judge having the power of life and death in his hands who bans a "Choose Life" vanity plate because there is no "Choose Death" vanity plate ("Judge: 'Choose Life' license plate unconstitutional," Dec. 12). Just when I am about to cancel my subscription to The Sun for lack of interest, it publishes something that makes me double over in laughter and cry in shame at the same time. God, what have we wrought? Gary Gamber, Reisterstown

"I would say that those who are callous about babies and callous about life ought to be brought to bear the callousness of their indifference. " - Newt Gingrich "It's about some phony ideal, some phony theology. " - Rick Santorum, on environmental stewardship What's it been like as a pro-lifer, during this year's big-money campaign? It's been an experience of split personality, I would say as a pro-life conservationist. Most conservationists I know tend to be pro-life.

On March 23, people across the nation rallied to protest show the rule forcing religious institutions to provide employee health care insurance covering contraceptives, sterilization and abortifacient drugs. In Baltimore, Rep. Andy Harris and former ambassador Alan Keyes spoke to a crowd of several hundred people, and I attended a rally in Ellicott City where I estimated about 150 people were present. There were two other rallies in Maryland. Yet The Sun gave these gatherings no coverage at all. Why not?

As I pulled into the front parking lot of Bel Air High School about 7 a.m. on Thursday, two men caught my eye. They were standing on the corner adjacent to the entrance to the school parking lot on Kenmore Avenue. Friday morning, the men were back, this time standing on the corner of Kenmore Avenue and Bobcat Drive. The men were holding up large signs in protest against abortion. Pro-life supporters have often been seen before around the town of Bel Air. They hold up signs displaying text and images opposing abortion.

Conservative groups are in an uproar over rapper Common's scheduled attendance at the White House's "Night of Poetry" event this week.  Sarah Palin, The Daily Caller and other right-of-center groups are criticizing a 2007 spoken word performance Common gave as allegedly threatening to police and President George W. Bush.   Nevermind that like most rappers, Common assumes a stage persona and is doing a form of acting while rapping (I seriously doubt a millionaire like Common is roaming the streets looking to shoot cops, as has been implied)

On April 13, in Readers Respond, John R. Baronas praised pro-life politicians and wrote "so too will 'safe' and legal abortions someday will be a thing of the past. " If he has his way, unsafe and illegal abortions will return from the past. What would victims of incest or rape, women too ill to bear children, or other women do then? This stance reveals how little value some place on the welfare, even the lives, of women. John T. Carey, Catonsville

Give teen-agers information, contraception The Sun is absolutely on mark in condemning the General Assembly for trying to legislate parent-child relationships ("Keep it out of court," editorial, March 9). It is irresponsible to require all teens seeking abortions to notify parents when many could be in abusive situations. The Sun is also right in that our lawmakers need to pass legislation making emergency contraception more easily accessed for women who need it. Along with emergency contraception, responsible sexuality education is the other key to preventing unintended pregnancies throughout Maryland.

Let's say you're an anti-abortion protester. You think abortion NTC is murder. And so, you believe you must do whatever you can to stop it.As a pro-life advocate, however, you don't believe in violence.In fact, you completely disavow the hard-core radical fringe of the movement, the kind of people who killed Dr. David Gunn and firebomb abortion clinics. You don't believe you can be pro-life and pro-violence at the same time.But you'll do anything short of violence. Because your conscience won't allow you to do anything less.

What Dan Rodricks doesn't understand ("The right's obsession with abortion," March 10) is that abortion is as much a moral issue as slavery was in the Civil War and civil rights were in Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s time. Once again, the dignity and worth of every human life is at stake and that is worth fighting for and defending in every possible way. Dan says jobs, jobs, jobs, that is what politician should fight for. To have a job you first have to have the right to live.
