Bowing to political correctness, editors of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst’s, college newspaper The Daily Collegian have changed the title of an article describing the recent visit of Planned Parenthood’s president from “Pro-abortion group leader gives speech” to “President of Planned Parenthood gives lecture.”
On November 10, PP’s interim prez Karen Pearl gave a lecture at the campus to lament Judge Samuel Alito’s nomination to the Supreme Court, among other things.
The article’s title drew the ire of at least one alum, and sometime during the last four days it was quietly censored.
Appropriately named alum Bill Butcher wrote a reactionary opinion piece to the title, stating in part, “No one is ‘pro-abortion’.”
I wrote a response reminding readers that of all times when the tag “pro-abortion” was appropriate, it would be to describe Planned Parenthood, the United States’ largest abortion provider.
