Abortion is about women’s bodies, according to one actress. Not unborn babies’ bodies. On August 7, Out magazine interviewed Golden Globe award-winning actress Kathleen Turner. The published piece came just hours after her Vulture interview where she spoke about, among other things, Hollywood and President Trump’s handshake. But this time she spoke about Vice President Mike Pence – and abortion.
Actress Mila Kunis is admitting she didn't know there was an "opposing side" to Planned Parenthood until pro-lifers made donations in her name. On July 30, Kunis spoke on the WTF with Marc Maron podcast. While news outlets foused on her opinion of President Trump, she also commented on Planned Parenthood. Although she admitted she was “impressed” by pro-lifers, she agreed they were “spiteful” – even though she didn’t know they existed until last year.
There was a recent outburst of respect for religion on two consecutive front pages of The New York Times, after Pope Francis changed the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The Times desperately desires to get religion out of politics when it comes to companies like Hobby Lobby that refuse on religious grounds to pay for birth control, eagerly embraces Christianity when it comes to leftist issues like global warming, immigration, and now the death penalty. Friday’s front page excitedly reported: “Pope Declares Death Penalty Always Wrong – Doctrine Change Could Hit U.S. Hardest.”
In addition to field trips and picnics, some liberals in the media are considering new ways of building family spirit…like abortion.
You know the Emmys. You know the Oscars. You always hear about -- but honestly, never pay attention to -- the Golden Globes. But have you heard about the new lefty-run awards show, “The Golden Probes?” If your initial thought was, “Hmm, that sounds kind of dirty,” you’re right. Innuendos aside, the premise of the event is pretty foul.
Season one of AMC’s Dietland finally draws to a close, and what a journey it’s been. Starting from a feminist group murdering for the #MeToo movement, to playing the oppression Olympics, the show is truly the pinnacle of third-wave feminism. To prove that, we leave off on the personal targeting of pro-life members of Congress.
On Monday's MSNBC Live with Stephanie Ruhle, viewers got to see another case which demonstrates that the purpose of a Republican or right-leaning MSNBC contributor is to avoid disagreeing too aggressively with the more stridently liberal commentators as contributor and former Ted Cruz aide Rick Tyler failed to counter claims that Judge Brett Kavanaugh has "radical" views on abortion and gun rights.
I knew that everything was going too smoothly with the fourth and final season of Lifetime's Bachelorette-style drama UnREAL, all 8 episodes of which were unceremoniously dropped on Hulu on July 17 with the announcement that the show was canceled. Sure enough, the very last episode of the series included a main character’s abortion, so everything went back to normal for this dumpster fire of a television show.
When it comes to polling, sometimes the questions reveal more than the answers. On Monday, an NBC/WSJ poll found that 71% of voters support Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the U.S. on a federal level. That should be a surprising number. But it’s not – simply because of the poll’s wording.
On Sunday evening, the NBC Nightly News ran a full report hyping a couple of cases in which pharmacists refused to fill a prescription -- one for an abortion and one for transgender hormone treatment. Host Kate Snow and correspondent Blake McCoy ended up fretting that "social conservatives" had pushed to expand state laws that allow pharmacists to refuse certain sales for reasons of morality.
Samantha Bee is demanding women take action against a man who could make abortion illegal. Or so she says. On her show Full Frontal July 18, host Samantha Bee ordered women to get “hysterical” over President Trump’s pick for next Supreme Court Justice: federal judge Brett Kavanaugh. She needn’t worry – they already have. But Bee’s fuss over abortion sounds like crying “wolf” after she called pro-lifers “d**kheads” of “toxic bullsh*t” in 2016 – not to mention other abortion outbursts.
The media simply adore Pope Francis, that is when they can selectively report on his comments to push their liberal agenda. Following the formula, Vogue recently posted an article by Jason Horowitz claiming that “Pope Francis is Changing the Church.”
