More Seuss

My buddy Mike Long, occasional NROnik, has sent along this news clip, from Canada’s National Post newspaper, January 29, 2001: “OTTAWA – The lawyer representing the widow of Theodor Seuss Geisel, known around the globe as children’s writer Dr. Seuss, is protesting the reprinting of a quote from the author’s work, Horton Hears a Who!, on an anti-abortion poster being distributed in Ottawa Roman Catholic churches. Cathy Bencieengo said she will ask the local anti-abortion group Action Life Ottawa to remove the line ‘A person’s a person, no matter how small’ and Dr. Seuss’s name from a colour poster showing an embryo.”

John J. Miller, the national correspondent for National Review and host of its Great Books podcast, is the director of the Dow Journalism Program at Hillsdale College. He is the author of A Gift of Freedom: How the John M. Olin Foundation Changed America.
