Last week’s cover story by Frank Carlson, “Race, Abortion, and Distortions,” incorrectly stated that a letter from Bishop Martin Holley referred to 80 percent of abortion clinics, and not Planned Parenthood clinics, as being located in black communities. Holley’s letter does, in fact, state that 80 percent of Planned Parenthood clinics are found in African-American neighborhoods, as Paul Simoneau said. However, the research upon which that is based, provided by the Pro-Life Secretariat of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, gives its highest percentage as 62 percent, not 80.
