The series in question was not objectionable because of the topic of abortion, it was offensive because of its strong pro-abortion slant, treating the topic of life and death as merely a topic of political satire.
A recent joint letter from Barb, Patricia, Connie, Joan, Mary, Cathy, Betty, Ellie and Margaret expressed their support of the "Doonesbury" comic strip and their disappointment that those seeking an abortion in Texas are required by state law to undergo an ultrasound: a procedure they describe as "unnecessary, expensive and uncomfortable." How could any medical procedure be deemed too unnecessary, expensive or uncomfortable when it could open the eyes of even one mother to the growing life within her?
Ladies, in your letter you refer to abortion as "a difficult decision." Please consider this and ask yourselves why you all describe abortion this way. If there were no negative moral, spiritual or religious implications to this "legal medical procedure," then why would it be a difficult decision?
Barb, Patricia, Connie, Joan, Mary, Cathy, Betty, Ellie and Margaret: please take a moment, think about the joy your own families have given you, and consider the wonder of looking at your own grandchildren. Look at the beauty of your own lives and allow the scales to fall from your eyes. Allow yourselves to turn away from the current culture of death, and revel in the beauty and sanctity of life.
