KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – In early versions of a March 9 story on a forthcoming “Doonesbury” comic strip series that uses graphic imagery to lampoon a Texas law requiring women to have an ultrasound before an abortion, The Associated Press reported that The Kansas City Star would use a replacement “Doonesbury” strip offered by the comic’s syndicate in the newspaper’s comics section. All versions of the AP story should have made clear that the paper also plans to publish the series about the abortion issue in its opinion section.
