National Geographic is delving into hot-button social issues for a second time this year with its announcement of a new drama The Birth of the Pill. According to an exclusive statement released to The Hollywood Reporter, the documentary will follow a group of four activists who “took on the scientific establishment, the church and cultural norms in their fight to make safe and effective contraception available to millions of women.”
An April 10 Rolling Stone article featured an interview with Dr. Willie Parker, an abortionist who identifies as a Christian. Parker’s recently released book is titled “Life’s Work: A Moral Argument for Choice” and was ghostwritten by Lisa Miller according to NYMag.com.
Campus feminists whipped up a Category-5 frenzy over sexual assault allegations at a Northwestern University fraternity in February. But last week, the school's Vice President for Student Affairs Patricia Telles-Irvin was forced to muster up her best impression of "Saturday Night Live's" classic foot-in-mouther, Emily Litella. Neeeeever miiiiind.
During the same show that MSNBC’s Chris Matthews and David Corn denounced the Susan Rice controversy as racist and sexist, Tuesday’s Hardball featured Matthews and MSNBC Live host Stephanie Ruhle imploring Ivanka Trump to defend Planned Parenthood while smearing her White House job as “un-American” and the Trump family as modern-day Romanovs.
Tuesday on The View, host Whoopi Goldberg was adamant that schools needed to provide free birth control to teenagers without parental consent, because they “don’t teach sex education at school.” Whoopi first made this strange allegation on a February 2 show, when she said that a school shouldn’t have to notify parents before putting condoms in the boys' and girls' bathrooms.
Univision vuelve a comprobar que el acceso irrestringido al aborto ocupa un lugar preferencial de prioridad editorial para la cadena. Este sesgo se desplegó plenamente en días recientes, mediante una serie de reportajes sobre Planned Parenthood que se pautaron para coincidir precisamente con la campaña "PinkOut" del principal proovedor de abortos del país, y en oposición a recortes de fondos federales a la organización.
Univision has demonsrated, yet again, that unfettered access to abortion-on-demand remains high on the network's policy advocacy agenda, second, perhaps, only to immigration. The blatant advocacy was on full dsiplay in recent days, in a series of Univision stories on Planned Parenthood that was perfectly timed to coincide with the PinkOut campaign on behalf of the nation's leading abortion provider, and in opposition to cuts to the organization's federal funding.
Virginia Democratic Senator and former vice-presidential candidate Tim Kaine announced on Thursday that he will oppose President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nomination of Neil Gorsuch. The smear Kaine has employed to justify his opposition has generated well-deserved criticism, especially in the Commonwealth. The Washington Post's alleged fact-checking operation, however, has given him an unearned pass.
In this crazy world we live in, even a broken clock can be right from time to time. For this installment, behold a Thursday Los Angeles Times editorial entitled “Felony charges are a disturbing overreach for the duo behind the Planned Parenthood sting videos” that came to the defense of the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) after California pressed 15 felony charges against the pro-life founders.
In Sunday night’s episode of HBO’s Girls, “Full Disclosure,” Lena Dunham's character Hannah is still informing her close friends and family about her pregnancy. Her decision to keep the baby comes as shocking “news” to those she tells given that Hannah is, much like Dunham herself, strongly liberal and extremely pro-abortion - so much so that Dunham stated publicly that she wishes she had had an abortion.
Bobby Ross Jr. at the blog Get Religion asked a great question: Why must major newspapers publicize “satirical bills” from the Left? It’s not just publicizing them, it’s giving them the press-release treatment, and no opposing view is included. Take this report on a feminist prank in Texas from the Houston Chronicle on "unregulated masturbatory emissions."
On Thursday afternoon, our friends at the Daily Caller caught The Washington Post and reporter Amber Phillips embarrassing themselves as the liberal paper told readers in a story about Planned Parenthood that the abortion provider was “nonpartisan.” Daily Caller News Foundation’s Rachel Stoltzfoos made clear in her first sentence just how laughable the claim was, noting that Planned Parenthood “spent 99 percent of its political contributions on Democrats in 2016 and endorsed Hillary Clinton for president.”
