Hollywood celebrities aren’t the only people upset about recent state efforts to limit abortion. A number of business executives are too. CNN Business writer Jackie Wattles promoted a letter signed by more than 180 business leaders that claimed restricting abortion was “bad for business.” It appeared as a full-page ad in The New York Times. She cited a “growing willingness” by businesses to take a stand on the biggest political issues of the day, but linked only to stories of CEOs embracing left-wing causes or attitudes.
President of NARAL Ilyse Hogue took to Glamour magazine on April 23 to tell corporate America, “women’s advancement should be top of mind for companies right now,” calling standing up for reproductive freedom one “critical aspect” that is overlooked. Because if there's one thing America needs more of right now, it's divisive politics.
The good thing about the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act is that it is very straightforward, there’s little wiggle room for the media’s typical machinations and euphemisms when it comes to abortion. The media has to be honest about what the bill is and what it does, which is why they like to take the focus off it and make the story about President Trump and Republicans.
Do-it-yourself (DIY) isn’t just for arts and crafts, according to the liberal media. Now, they’re using the term for abortion. Following stronger pro-life legislation and the closing of abortion clinics, liberal journalists first panicked about the rise of dangerous DIY abortion. Some exaggerated the number of women attempting them.
How enthusiastic is the Democratic Party about abortion? So enthusiastic that Snopes.com felt compelled to debunk a satire story stating that former Philadelphia abortionist and convicted murderer Kermit Gosnell addressed the DNC by video from prison. Yes, that was satire. However, considering other DNC incidents, it’s easy to see why the fake story was convincing.
In what Yahoo News called a “convention first,” NARAL president Ilyse Hogue proclaimed her past abortion loud and clear in her nationally televised DNC speech. Yet, the resounding cheers and applause from her Philly audience were not loud enough to reach the networks’ ears. In fact, neither NBC, ABC nor CBS provided any coverage of Hogue’s July 27 speech or the crowd’s shamefully ecstatic response to her personal history.
Get this! Pro-choice and pro-life activists agree on something: the tactics and messaging of the pro-life movement are better than they ever were. And the battle is on.
Here’s another shocker. ABC Nightline devoted a 10-minute segment of fairly objective journalism to “what the pro-life movement looks like at its strongest in the United States today.”
Want to frame one the most nihilistic and anti-religious political stances into a pro-family and relatable one? Let The Washington Post show you how!
In Monday’s “Style” section, reporter Ellen McCarthy did a glowing profile of NARAL President Ilyse Hogue. McCarthy presented Hogue as a relatable, working and expecting (36 weeks pregnant) mother. She opened with Hogue’s “swollen ankles and sleepless nights” and hammered home that Hogue was not the typical type to take on leadership at NARAL, one of the most vocal and extreme pro-abortion groups in the country.
If you thought the tired, discredited "War on Women" meme was a thing of the past, think again. MSNBC.com is doing its best to keep it alive. Witness how they gave a platform today to Ilyse Hogue of the abortion-rights absolutist group NARAL Pro-Choice America.
Sometimes, all you can say is, “Keep telling yourself that.”
Elle’s Rachael Combe recently honored NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue as one of the “10 Most Powerful Women in D.C.” For Combe’s piece, Hogue told Elle that, “Even though states adopted 53 antichoice measures last year,” Americans “really do live in a pro-choice country.” Fortunately, the polls disagree.
Calling your opponents un-American and agitating for the most extreme pro-abortion position doesn’t just get you the attention of Daily Kos or Democratic Underground. It can get you props from a mainstream women’s magazine.
Elle revealed its list of the 10 most powerful women in D.C. on Wednesday – and included NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue as one of the top picks. Hogue recently accused pro-lifers and tea partiers of “lying and cheating,” and posited that anti-abortion means “anti-American”(even when 58% of Americans want all or most abortions illegal).
Everybody says something stupid and offensive at one time or another. But it takes a special kind of ideologue to turn it into a speech repeated over and over. And that ideologue is NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue.
We missed it the first time she told a crowd that pro-lifers are “un-American.” That was at a Feb. 4 event in Washington, D.C. marking the pro-abortion group’s 45th anniversary (see video below). But Hogue liked it so much she said it again in San Francisco on March 4, at an event featuring Sandra Fluke, America’s most famous birth control user.
Remember when you could disagree with liberals and not get smeared as extreme and/or dishonest? Me neither. It’s how the left argues – especially about abortion.
During a Google+ hangout on Feb. 10, NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue bashed the pro-life movement and the tea party for “lying and cheating” to pass legislation. She also asserted that the pro-life stance is “outside of the mainstream.” (Not according the polls). The “#ASKNARAL Pro-Choice Hangout” event featured other NARAL employees in addition to Hogue discussing “choice” and answering questions asked via Twitter.
