Doonesbury’s Charlie Hebdo Problem

Trudeau points out that he satarises laws, institutions, religious terrorists themselves, but leaves people’s religions icons alone, because he feels that nobody gets to decide what should or shouldn’t be sacred to any particular individual. Therefore your “anti abortion law” satirist is well within the bounds of his ‘red line.’ Anti abortion laws, after all, attempt to force one person’s idea of sacredness onto every woman.
And yes indeed, anti-choice men have been known to kill people who espouse the rights of women to their autonomy. Unlike the Muslim neighborhoods of France, these men have the backing of many powerful men. Women themselves are the downward punch.

I don’t think you are competent to put words in Trudeau’s mouth, although you do a nice pastiche of his drawing style.

Like what you read? Give Homa Sapien a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
