It’s no secret that writer and show creator Shonda Rhimes, who is responsible for hits such as Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy, How to Get Away with Murder (by becoming an abortionist?) and The Catch, is a strong pro-abortion advocate. Not only does she make zero effort to hide her view on the controversial topic or try to appear bias-free, she now has gone so far as to join the board of abortion-giant Planned Parenthood.
Oprah’s show Greenleaf, a drama featuring a Christian “megachurch” and the fallible humans behind it, has been all over the map when it comes to representing Christian values accurately. One minute, the show is depicting gay conversion therapy programs in a positive light. The next, it’s sending the message that Christians who don’t support gay marriage are “broken.”
Sunday night’s episode of American Crime, “Season Three: Episode 5” took an interesting turn in the ongoing pregnancy/abortion storyline of former prostitute Shae (Ana Mulvoy Ten), who is on her second pregnancy and heading towards her second abortion.
Reporter Jennifer Steinhauer has been at the New York Times since 1989, and has been covering Congress since 2010. Despite her decades of experience, she committed two horribly ignorant errors in her Thursday coverage of the Senate's vote to undo an Obama administration rule which had prevented states from "blocking funding for family planning clinics that also provide abortions."
Whether it’s in their phrasing or omissions, the networks aren’t backing down in their defense of America’s largest abortion provider. On Thursday, the U.S. Senate passed a bill empowering states to halt hundreds of millions in Title X federal funding from Planned Parenthood and other organizations that perform abortions. In their reporting, the anchors saw the development from the abortion giant’s perspective: a “major setback.”
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.
The Fosters, a multi-ethnic blended family headed by two lesbian moms and comprised of adopted kids and foster kids, continues to bring teen abortion and LGBT sex education to the forefront, this time pushing the issues even further when it comes to parental knowledge - or lack thereof.
On Sunday’s episode of HBO’s Girls, “Gummies,” Hannah (Lena Dunham) continues with her decision to keep her baby that she conceived after a very brief fling with a surf instructor while on a writing assignment. The seemingly pro-life storyline is a bit suspect given Dunham’s avid support of abortion and her wish that she could have had one herself (which she later apologized for while stating that she still wants to remove the “stigma” surrounding the controversial procedure.)
Filling-in as host of CNN’s Inside Politics on Wednesday, chief White House correspondent and Trump sparring partner Jim Acosta did his part for the Day Without a Woman protesters by wondering if it’s symbolized “the makings of a Democratic Party resurgence” and hinting that it would behoove President Trump to remain quiet about this.
The title for episode two of Big Little Lies, which aired Sunday, February 26, on HBO, ended up having a much deeper meaning than just competition among some of the mothers to have the most popular children, the best birthday parties, and to be the alpha mother ruling over all other moms at fictional Otter Bay Elementary School set in Monterey, California.
On Tuesday, Congressional GOP leaders unveiled their new health care bill that’s supposed to repeal and replace ObamaCare, much to the chagrin of liberals and some conservatives. CBS came out strongly against the proposal and backed up Planned Parenthood in their stand against the bill. “Planned Parenthood is saying no deal to a proposal from President Trump,” announced anchor Scott Pelley during CBS Evening News, “He said that he would keep funding the nation's largest family planning provider if it stopped providing abortions.
