Contradictions or Hypocrisy

The American Psychological Society has argued both sides of the question about the maturity of juveniles depending upon the left-wing position most preferred. Both sides cannot be correct!

The APA, in short, has argued in briefs to the Supreme Court that 1) teenagers under 18 are mature enough to decide on their own whether or not to kill a fetus, but 2) they are not mature enough to be held responsible for murder. It is hard to avoid the conclusion that the APA has tailored its allegedly scholarly arguments to fit its preferred political results, a practice that is, unfortunately, common enough to give all scholarship a bad name.
