Eye-opening errors in a New York Times column on abortion debate
Catholic World News - October 29, 2012
Writing for National Review, Wesley Smith calls attention to the stunning ignorance displayed by New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman in a piece in which Friedman argued that a "pro-life" commitment should require support for gun control, but not necessarily opposition to abortion.
Friedman's argument, Smith notes, is laced with gross errors of fact regarding both gun-control laws and the facts of human reproduction. Smith questions how such blatant errors could have found their way into a column published in a major American newspaper.
