South Dakota Gov. Mike Rounds did the right thing on Monday. He ordered the state library’s web site taken down because it linked to pro-abortion, pro-teen sex, pro-contraception web sites, including one run by Planned Parenthood. Of course, civil libertarians are angry because they think anyone should be exposed to anything at any age, unless of course that anything is religion or traditional morality. Rounds acted after Bishop Robert Carlson of Sioux Falls asked him to intervene. Kudos to Rounds and Carlson.
Claims of censorship are misplaced, since all that was removed were links to those sites, not the sites themselves. People can still access those sites if they go to them directly.
