Boston Globe Lets Doonesbury Strip Kind of . . . Lie

First, a disclaimer: The hardreading staff believes that the new Texas vigilante abortion law is an abomination, given that it essentially outlaws abortions in the One Star State.

Accent on essentially, since the bounty-hunting law technically bans abortions after six weeks.

But that’s not what the Boston Globe allowed Doonesbury creator Garry Trudeau to charge in its Sunday comics page.

That’s flat out false.

If the left wants to hold the right accountable for misleading – or lying – to the voting public, the reverse has got to be true as well.

Not to mention Trudeau.

        Well, if we want to get technical about it, the ban goes into effect when a heartbeat is detected. That’s usually around six weeks, but not always.
