‘America’s Hispanic Superbrand’: Despite Coronavirus, Abortion Remains ‘Essential’

March 27th, 2020 1:39 PM

As the coronavirus pandemic further strains the nation’s medical capabilities, Univision continues to carry Planned Parenthood’s water, suggesting that abortion is in fact an essential service. 

Watch the full report below, in which anchor Satcha Pretto unblinkingly repeats the abortion-industrial complex’ grievances against Texas Governor Greg Abbott, as aired on Univision’s ¡Despierta América! kaffeklatsch On Thursday, March 26th, 2020: 



SATCHA PRETTO: This morning, Texas faces a lawsuit due to their prohibition of abortion in the midst of this COVID-19 outbreak. Planned Parenthood, along with other providers, accused Republican leaders of taking advantage of this public health crisis in order to fulfill their political promises. This happened after Governor Greg Abbott issued an order that temporarily suspended all non-essential surgeries, with the goal of freeing medical supplies for the fight against the Coronavirus.

This report serves to remind us that abortion is one of Univision’s pet policy agenda items, right up there with gun control and second only to immigration. It is shocking to see that Univision would mindlessly regurgitate Planned Parenthood’s propaganda while in the midst of a global pandemic, where medical supplies are at a premium. 

America’s so-called ‘Hispanic Superbrand’ proves, once again, how out of touch it is with the audience it claims to champion. Furthermore, Univision proves that the nation's Spanish-speaking media market cries out for an alternative.
