Comics about women’s reproductive rights simply not “appropriate”
Doonesbury cartoonist Gary Trudeau takes on Texas’ controversial abortion laws this week, but you won’t see them in our big bold San Diego U-T. U-T editor Jeff Light joins a number of equally feckless editors in places like Kansas City, MO, pulling the strip completely, or providing “replacements.” Father knows best…
In today’s Doonesbury strip, a Texas woman walks into an abortion clinic and is introduced to the shaming room.
San Diego civic activist/blogger Norma Damashek writes about the U-T:
“It’s back to kindergarten with color-coded newspaper sections. The Business section is dollar bill green. Sports is football brown. Local is bay blue. Food is plum purple.”
And the coverage of women’s reproductive rights is Void black. Welcome to the “shaming room,” U-T style.
