Immediately following President Trump’s historic live address from the Rose Garden to the March for Life this afternoon, MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell tried to ignore the significant acknowledgement from a sitting president for the largest annual pro-life gathering every year, since Roe vs. Wade.
Forty-five years ago, on January 22, 1973, the Supreme Court handed down the infamous Roe v. Wade decision that made abortion on demand the law of the land. Sixty million abortions later, we are still battling over the disastrous ruling, in court and in the culture wars.
The Trump administration took a large step in defending religious freedom on Thursday when the Department of Health and Human Services unveiled its new Conscience and Religion Freedom Division. The new division, which was a part of its civil rights office, was tasked with ensuring “doctors, nurses and other health providers to opt-out of services that violate their moral or religious beliefs.” In spite of the good news, the three major network news outlets and both Spanish-language networks ignored the story during their evening broadcasts.
For the first time in history, the president is addressing the March for Life live via satellite. But does that mean that the media, who report on his every tweet, will finally give the pro-life marchers – and the millions of unborn they stand for – the coverage they deserve?
NPR's All Things Considered on Thursday zeroed in on a pro-life organization that tries to get the employees of abortion facilities to end their participation in the killing of unborn babies. Despite the surprising attention on former Planned Parenthood manager Abby Johnson and her group, And Then There Were None, the public radio program still inserted slanted language into their report. Sarah McCammon labeled the organization an "anti-abortion group." McCammon later noted that Johnson has "gradually been embraced by the anti-abortion rights movement."
Celebrating the destruction of lives in abortion is the perfect fashion statement for the upcoming Women’s March, according to Vogue. On Wednesday, Vogue magazine published a piece announcing new Women’s March gear. “This T-Shirt Makes a Subtle Statement About Reproductive Rights, Just in Time for the Women’s March,” wrote fashion news writer Emily Farra. Reproductive rights, meaning abortion.
While many in the media have given embarrassingly small coverage to the largest annual march in Washington, D.C. in years past, the growing list of big name speakers makes the 2018 event increasingly difficult to censor. On Wednesday, the March for Life announced that House Speaker Paul Ryan would address the 45th annual March for Life on January 19.
This year, TV writers made no effort to conceal their liberal biases. Show plotlines were riddled with left-leaning political views, ranging from attempts to destigmatize abortion and euthanasia to caricaturizing Republicans as poor-hating racists. Here are 10 of the most outrageously liberal TV scenes from the year guaranteed to make your blood boil:
In a fawning softball interview with Alabama Senator-elect Doug Jones for CBS Sunday Morning, reporter Manuel Bajorquez treated the Democrat to a comparison with To Kill a Mocking Bird protagonist Atticus Finch and assured viewers that the radically pro-abortion liberal was actually a “red-state Democrat” who represented the “new Alabama.”
We all know we should “turn the other cheek.” Few of us ever do. That’s why the reaction of one pro-life teenager to a woman who punched her in the face outside an abortion clinic is extraordinary. On Monday, Students for Life of America published a video of 15-year-old Purity Thomas recalling how a woman punched her as she stood holding a pro-life sign outside a Planned Parenthood clinic.
During an exclusive interview with Democratic Alabama Senator-elect Doug Jones on Thursday’s NBC Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie kept all the questions easy and steered clear of the liberal politician’s radical pro-abortion views. However, she did find time to ask him whether the Republican tax bill should be delayed so he could vote against it.
In November 2015, Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar at The View rudely shut down then-presidential candidate Carly Fiorina, insisting that she was lying when she stated that Planned Parenthood had admitted to harvesting baby parts from aborted fetuses. On Friday, Orange County's district attorney announced a $7.8 million settlement with two California companies accused of "selling fetal-derived cells and tissues" obtained from fetal body parts acquired from Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers. When will ABC demand that Whoopi and Joy apologize?
