Independent Women's Forum (IWF) Biography

Position:
Con to the question "Is the ACLU Good for America?"
Reasoning:

“The rights of the homeless today apparenty encompass the right to destroy our libraries. The ACLU is defending that right, along with the right of genuinely criminal types, to disrupt libraries. I rather think that, deep down, the ACLU believes that society has failed ‘the homeless’ and that they should have the right to shout down society. In the library. While I am trying to read.”
