Social Issues: Letters

To: Star Tribune, Editor (opinion{at}
Subject: PBS

Some readers seem to think that PBS currently broadcasts a perfect balance of ideological views and that any tilt towards the conservative will turn it into a right wing puppet. But has anyone ever seen a program that shows the powerful scientific case for the intelligent design of life? Has there ever been an investigative probe into the suppression of evidence for lifelong emotional damage and significant health risk to women who have abortions? Could you even imagine there ever being a sensitive and coherent presentation of the considerable data that show sexual orientation to be a product of environment and experience, which in some cases is even susceptible to change?
