Syndicated Columnist
Position:
Pro to the question "Is the ACLU Good for America?"
Reasoning:

“As a pro-lifer, I have had profound disagreements with the ACLU…. But … the continuing invasions of basic liberties in the USA Patriot Act and the subsequent insistence by the administration to set up an additional parallel legal system, affects all of our freedoms. And the ACLU has proved essential in that battle.”
