Editors at the New York Times Magazine say they are going to publish a note to readers saying they were unaware that a woman featured in a firsthand account of her decision to abort two of her triplet fetuses was a prominent crusader for abortion rights.
"The editors of our magazine did not know about [Amy] Richards’s activist background," a Times spokeswoman, Catherine Mathis, told The New York Sun by e-mail after the Sun had inquired about the piece. "We plan to run an editors’ note."
Ms. Richards’s 871-word account of her abortions ran on July 18 in the magazine’s "Lives" back-cover column under the headline "When One Is Enough."
