Doonesbury Abortion Censorship Watch
We reported on Friday that popular political comic strip Doonesbury was being pulled by numerous newspapers this week over it’s taking on the attack on women’s rights and issues like being forced to have a trans-vaginal ultrasound before an abortion. We’re two strips in and I’m scratching my head as to what the problem with the strips are (then again, I am a damn dirty liberal/hippie).
Warning, these panels do ruin each strips punchlines.
Have to like that Scarlet letter A.
Doonesbury creator Garry Trudeau discussed the censorship and strips with the Washington Post on Sunday. In why he hopped into the debate Trudeau responded:
To ignore it, would have been comedy malpractice.
