CNN Challenges Pro-Life Guest and Pro-Choice Guest From the Left

Reporting on the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade on Tuesday, CNN's Carol Costello pelted a pro-life guest with liberal talking points while chiding the president of pro-choice NARAL for not doing enough for the pro-choice movement.

Liberals, Media Try to Shift Debate from Abortion to Contraception

I wrote last week about a theory put forth by Washington Post's Sarah Kliff that abortion proponents were shifting strategies to focus on contraceptives rather than abortion, the reason being their own polls show abortion is no longer a winning issue with young people and women, but contraception is. This week Republican strategist Dick Morris pitched the same theory on Hannity, adding…
