gregs@herald-mail.com Gorman Palmer, 71, of Hagerstown, said he spent part of the weekend at his granddaughter's guitar recital, and later this week he plans to take two of his grandsons fishing in Pennsylvania. On Monday morning, Palmer was among dozens of anti-abortion activists standing along West Washington Street in Hagerstown. Some held graphic photos that the activists said were of fetuses that were aborted. "Of course, it's very gory, so to speak. But this is the truth, so it's not misleading," Palmer said.

Bob Maginnis' local viewpoint column of April 21 absolutely is a disaster in the annals of editorial misadventure. Why did you decide to give all this coverage to the pro-abortion side without a similar interview of a pro-life representative of the silent-no-more group that will be demonstrating the same day? These are the women and men who can tell you about the real hurt of abortion. Where was your column on the massive Pro-Life March last January? If Linda Smith thinks the "back alley" abortions of the pre-Roe era were so bad, why does she think that today's industry is any better?

Linda Smith grew up in a conservative Republican family and attended the Presbyterian Church, so she heard the arguments against abortion early in life. But she said that what she learned as a health professional convinced her that it's a choice that needs to be preserved. That's why she and the Washington County chapter of the National Organization for Women are taking a bus to this Sunday's March for Women's Lives that will end with a 1 p.m. rally on the National Mall in Washinbgton, D.C. Hundreds of thousands will gather there, she said, in an attempt to reach the Congress, the president and voters across the country with the message that Roe v. Wade, the 1972 U.S. Supreme Court decision which legalized abortion, is in jeopardy.
