Eye-opening errors in a New York Times column on abortion debate
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.
