Salt Lake City Tribune cartoonist Pat Bagley protested his paper's decision to run all but one strip from the controversial Doonesbury abortion story-arc by pasting it into his own space. The Tribune objected to the last panel of Gary Trudeau's comic, in which the doctor performing a mandatory sonogram says, "by the authority invested in me by the GOP base, I thee rape."

However Bagley snuck it in under his own comic, in which he criticizes former Republican Utah House Majority Leader Kevin Garn. Garn was forced to resign in 2010 after scandal involving him hot-tubbing in the nude with an underage girl.

A "Doonesbury" story arc that begins with this strip has been pulled from several papers across the country. In the strips, Gary Trudeau satirizes a Texas law that requires women seeking an abortion to be presented with a an ultrasound of the fetus 24 hours before the procedure. The Gainesville Sun in Florida and the Kansas City Star, among other publications, have replaced the story arc with old "Doonesbury" strips. The comics are available to anyone online at Doonesbury.com
