I don’t usually bristle at political cartoons I disagree with because I figure we can all use a little skewering. But Clay Bennett’s May 11 Drawing Board cartoon about abortion crossed several lines. The elderly character wearing a Pro-Life button is unhappy about the morning-after pill becoming more easily available, to which his (presumable) wife says, “Not everyone makes abstinence as easy as you do, dear.” Bennett thus managed to put down married people, pro-life advocates and abstinence in one fell swoop. Bravo. It’s not like we’d want to disparage teen sex, abortion and casual sex, right? Oh, wait . . .
