Just in time for the March For Life, another celeb-driven pro-abortion PSA has been making the rounds on social media, with the message that more Americans than ever are okay with killing babies. Take that, March For Life supporters.
While television networks largely celebrate abortion, it’s worth noting that a celebration of life is taking place, with the annual March for Life on January 24. Whether networks will finally give these peaceful pro-lifers their due in media coverage, after for years neglecting them, remains to be seen. Meanwhile, liberal television networks, from news shows, to actress spokespersons, to television dramas, continue to promote abortion to the public.
Even when Hollywood acknowledges the humanity of the unborn (only in the context of the mother wanting it, of course), they still must get their digs in at pro-lifers and promote the pro-choice position. Such was the case on Thursday’s episode of Freeform’s grown-ish, (“Damn”) as student Nomi (Emily Arlook) shows up at college very obviously pregnant after being away for several months, leading her best friend Zoey (Yara Shahidi) to ask why she didn’t “uncomplicate the situation.” The show also pushed the untruth that a woman can’t have an abortion at five-months gestation because it’s “too late.”
Freeform’s Good Trouble timed a random pro-abortion criticism of conservative courts to air in an episode during the week of the March for Life. While hundreds of thousands of pro-life supporters are expected to gather in Washington, D.C. for the annual March for Life Friday, liberal social justice warrior Callie Adams Foster bashes the desire of pro-life supporters to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Showtime’s The L Word: Generation Q is usually a love letter to left-wing hedonism, promoting a radical matriarchal vision of sexual revolution. (I say “matriarchal” because straight men do not exist in the show except as villains or annoyances who briefly pop in and out now and again.) That is why it was surprising to see the show spotlight the heartbeat of an unborn child in this week’s episode, “Lose it All,” on January 19.
On the front page of Saturday’s New York Times, reporter Lisa Lerer wondered why so many women were reluctant to vote for a woman (i.e. Elizabeth Warren) to run for president in “Taking Feminism to Heart, if Not to the Caucuses – Beating Trump Matters More Than Electing a Woman, to Some.” As is often the case, unfettered abortion rights was a priority: "Ms. Schlenker has seen how the current political moment has convinced her daughter that her rights could be taken away, and that sexism remains a force in both of their lives."
Big Abortion is jumping into the 2020 race with big numbers. It was announced Thursday that Planned Parenthood is launching what CBS News’ Kate Smith reported is “the biggest electoral effort in its history: a $45 million spend to support presidential, congressional and state-level candidates in the 2020 elections who support abortion rights.”
Every now and then some truth comes out during a network series that destroys a narrative long promoted by the left. Unborn babies are often referred to by the pro-abortion left as "clumps of cells," but this episode showed that ultrasounds reveal the humanity of the unborn child.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's strategy of holding on to the two weak articles of impeachment against President Trump was starting to rattle some Democrats, who felt they were losing the political battle. Last Wednesday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) told reporters, “If we're going to do it, she should send them over,” adding, “I don't see what good delay does.” On Friday, Pelosi sent a letter to her Democratic colleagues that announced she was preparing to send the two articles of impeachment to the Senate this week.
Our democracy is dying: Russia/Ukrainegate has floundered and legal abortion may not be long for this world. In this dire time for progressives, a disgusting pro-abortion art installation must give them comfort. The Guardian and Bloomberg News praised the latest abomination in modern art as a necessary balm to the country’s anti-abortion “stigma” and a great way to “raise funds” for the child-killing procedure.
I had the displeasure of watching Ilana Glazer's (Broad City) standup comedy special, released January 3, which earned its low 2.5 star rating on Amazon Prime. I wasn't expecting to find the humor particularly to my liking, but I wasn't expecting to find it so objectively unfunny, either. It looked like it was filmed in a pretty small venue, and the meager audience barely even laughed at her jokes.
In Showtime’s Shameless, seedy storylines are not unusual. In fact, it’s the norm. In the episode airing January 5, titled "O Captain, My Captain", as part of a side hustle, bar owners Kevin Ball and Veronica Fisher decide to make medical abortions available to teenagers.
