Nat Hentoff (d. 2017) is a writer and columnist for several publications including The Village Voice, The Washington Times, and Jewish World Review. He is a noted liberal and civil libertarian who exposed the hypocrisy of Democrats who speak of tolerance but brook no dissent. [1]

However, he has become a victim of ostracism by the politically correct left.[Citation Needed] Why? Because he is pro-life. His opposition to abortion and the subsequent ostracism he experienced has led him to speak out against other aspects of political correctness, such as campus speech codes. He wrote a book Free Speech for Me - But Not For Thee on the subject, and in recent years has become critical of the American Civil Liberties Union over these issues. Hentoff has previously served on the Board of Directors of the New York Civil Liberties Union.

He currently heads the group Democrats for Life of America, a pro-life caucus within the Democratic Party.
