Those Doonesbury Strips - And Reactions - In Full

As the week’s controversial Doonesbury strips get leaked in full (find it in colour here), a number of newspapers have been reconsidering their reaction to drop the strip this week.

The Des Moines Register reports;

This week’s series of Doonesbury comic strips — they deal with a woman’s visit to a Texas abortion clinic — will appear inside the Sunday Opinion section this weekend.

Appearing with them will be a selection of readers’ letters about the strips, along with a commentary by Editor Rick Green about The Des Moines Register’s decision to remove them from daily Register comics pages.

The Athens Banner Herald paper is reconsidered its decision to drop the strip, after readers mocked the editor for saying it might confuse them, considering Georgia has its own separate abortion legislation being deliberated upon. The strip is now running.

 

 

The Spokesman Review blames the advertising department for the decision.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach has decided to drop today’s strip only, for the “I thee rape” line. And with letter writers up in arms and paper after paper writing articles having to justify their decision, even the papers that didn’t run the strip have now become part of the narrative.

If Gary Trudea wanted to get people talking about the subject, he succeeded admirably.
