Comment & Controversy
OBG Management is not an advocacy journal
Dr. O’Hanlan’s article is a lengthy, one-sided opinion statement by a well-respected community advocate of homosexual civil union. Regardless of the nature of the controversial topic, I believe that one-sided statements are a poor choice for a publication that calls itself OBG Management. That name implies thoughtful research and analysis, planning, organization, and leadership in the accomplishment of high-quality ObGyn care and practice. If you present one-sided opinions, you are throwing out the thoughtful research and analysis, which is an essential foundation to the ends.
Your approach is also a disservice to the cause that you are trying to promote, because your readers know when you are trying to manipulate their views.
