“Should We Be Having Kids In The Age of Climate Change?” That was the audacious question NPR’s website and “All Things Considered” radio show asked on Aug. 18, as it promoted a college professor’s “radical” proposal that people need to have fewer children because of the “prospect of climate catastrophe.”
Radical feminists turned against the liberal New York Times, after the above-the-fold picture on the front page of Thursday's edition featured three pro-life women. The trio were picketing in front of the Supreme Court on Wednesday. One held a sign which read, "I Am A Prolife Feminist." Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards posted on Twitter, "@NYTimes forgot to take photos of the 3k folks rallying yesterday for #reprorights. Send them your best pics!"

Ludden pointed out how "Planned Parenthood denies any wrongdoing," and asserted that "the videos show no evidence of it."
NPR aired a story on how "abortion restrictions complicate access for Ohio women." Jennifer Ludden focused on a Cleveland abortion clinic called Preterm. Abortion advocates complained that pro-lifers were making abortions more dangerous with their restrictions.

Ludden barely touched on other risks to the procedures, such as using them to permit women over 50 become pregnant.
The correspondent began her report by hyping the emotion behind the problem the donation and freezing procedures aim to fix: the declining fertility of women 40 years of age and older:
