Following the lead of COSMOS magazine, New Humanist today joins in a coordinated effort to publish Simon Singh's Guardian piece on chiropractic. We've published it on the New Humanist website – it has been edited to remove references to the British Chiropractic Association, who are currently suing Simon for libel over the original Guardian piece. As that original article is part of an ongoing legal case, there is no option but to edit out that section in this instance. Nevertheless, the piece retains Simon's key concerns about the validity of chiropractic in treating a wide range of conditions, and the potential medical dangers related to such practices.
Today's mass publication is being coordianted by Sense About Science as part of the Keep Libel Laws Out Of Science campaign, and it is hoped that a large number of publications and blogs across the world will join in with this move to demonstrate that bringing legal proceedings against a science writer will not lead to the closing down of free debate.
The Skeptic website has been keeping track of places where the piece has already been published - hopefully they will continue to update that over the course of today.
