Charter accounting

In battle for life, hearts must change
Letters to the Editor
Kudos to The Blade for reporting on the March for Life that draws hundreds of thousands of people to Washington each January to mark the anniversary of Roe vs Wade. However, your Jan. 25 editorial “Reproductive regression” continues to promote misconceptions about abortion and pro-lifers. …
