A response to Bishop Kevin Rhoades
Letter to the Editor | Monday, November 16, 2015
Bishop Kevin Rhoades’s recent long letter to The Observer excoriating Planned Parenthood (Nov. 12) exemplifies the tunnel vision and lack of proportionality that often characterize anti-abortion editorializing. When Bishop Rhoades compares student support of Planned Parenthood to (hypothetical) support of the Ku Klux Klan, he ignores a fundamental difference. A central part of the activity of one organization aims to help a large group of our fellow citizens realize their legal rights, while the other aims to intimidate a large group of our fellow citizens from realizing theirs.
The views expressed in this Letter to the Editor are those of the author and not necessarily those of The Observer.
