This past May, NPR released a guideline for the terminology that should be used in regards to the abortion debate. The guideline stated, “Babies are not babies until they are born” and abortion clinics are “health clinics.” And war is peace and freedom is slavery and ignorance is strength -- just like Orwell said. This morning, following NPR’s lead, The Guardian announced that it will no longer call the Georgia abortion bill “the heartbeat bill” because it is “not medically accurate.” It will now be called “ the six week abortion ban.”
NBC correspondent Heidi Przybyla was on the Wednesday edition of MSNBC's Morning Joe to talk about her article detailing former Vice President Joe Biden's record on abortion. The newsworthy information contained in her article was that Biden has flipped back to supporting the Hyde Amendment after saying "It can't stay" a couple of weeks ago.
Today, the UK’s “centrist” newspaper The Independent reported that Brandon Wade, founder of a popular website for sugar daddies (older men that spend lavishly on their younger girlfriends for sex), has offered to pay Alabama women to have out-of-state abortions. The Independent's article itself is packed with rhetoric and misinformation meant to defame the pro-life support for the Alabama abortion bill.
Whenever Miley Cyrus pops back into the news, the rest of the country appears a lot more wholesome in comparison. Today at 11:14 AM, while normal Americans were working for a living, Miley Cyrus tweeted out a picture of herself licking a cake that says “Aborton Is Healthcare.” Here’s a good rule of thumb: if Miley Cyrus is your political ally, you’re probably on the wrong side.
On Tuesday's edition of MSNBC Live with Velshi and Ruhle, co-host Ali Velshi hyped a story that came literally and metaphorically out of left field. With the context of Missouri's last abortion providing clinic in court over its license not being renewed, Velshi introduced a new documentary produced by Katie Engelhart of the unintentionally, but appropriately named NBC Left Field that documents how women are using the internet to acquire self-inducing abortion drugs.
Just when you think lefty political elites couldn’t get more detached from reality, they take a trip to Neverland. According to The Guardian, the U.N. Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights Kate Gilmore believes that the “US policy on abortion is a form of extremist hate that amounts to the torture of women.” Supposedly, the pro-life bills that have passed across the country are indicative of a “crisis,” “organized and well-resourced by very extremist groups.” And by “extremist groups” she means “conservative, Christian organizations.”
On Saturday's CBS Weekend News, a pre-recorded report focused partially on liberals in the Nevada legislature managing to pass a new pro-abortion law, and, rather than providing a pro-life side to balance the story, the lone pro-lifer shown was portrayed as not minding that her side lost. In fact, she was even praised for accepting her side's defeat.
Just recently, the CNN show United Shades of America’s fourth episode of season four ostensibly about the abortion debate. Students for Life of America was invited by the show to come down to Jackson, Mississippi for a day of filming. Unfortunately, the episode showed why CNN has a reputation for fake news.
On Friday's CNN Newsroom, co-hosts Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto invited Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter on to talk about various media companies threatening that they will cease producing content in Georgia, should that state's pro-life bill become law.
The debate over newly-enacted pro-life legislation in various states continues to roil Spanish-language media. On one major national outlet there appears to be no debate, but rather a one-sided monologue. Check out the full post to see two clips from Entravision’s weekly political affairs show Politica Ya (and its prior version, Perspectiva Nacional) that are precisely a year apart, that showcase a strong pro-abortion bias, as voiced here by host and anchor Tsi-Tsi-Ki Félix:
Lizz Winstead is no stranger to subtlety and grace. The co-creator and former head writer of the Daily Show announced in a Twitter thread that she has changed the name of her abortion advocacy group from the refined “Lady Parts Justice” to the more low-key “Abortion Access Front!” or “Abortion AF” for short (AF is also short for “as fuck” in internet lingo).
A combination of summer heat and abortion legislation has brewed a liberal meltdown as the University of Alabama now risks losing its largest donor. According to a report by Florida Politics, University of Alabama donor Hugh Culverhouse Jr. wants everyone to boycott Alabama’s state institutions, including the University of Alabama, in response to the abortion bill signed by Alabama Governor Kay Ivey.
