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.
Valentine’s Day is supposed to be a day about love, but pro-abortion activists have managed twisted it into a celebration of the ugly, hateful act of abortion.
So you say you’re weary of all that press coverage for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the New York Democrat who defeated heavily favored incumbent Representative Joe Crowley in the party’s primary last month and is still trying to explain what a “Democratic socialist” does? If so, Time magazine has got the candidate just for you! And if she’s victorious on Election Day, she will become a hard-left governor for the state of Georgia.
I thought we had seen it all from radical feminists — and what we've seen is way, way more than anyone other than a gynecologist needs to see. Six years ago, Code Pink zealots traipsed across the fruited plain in giant female reproductive organ costumes demanding “respect” for women's bodies and women's abortion rights. They called themselves “dancing vaginas.”
On Fox News Sunday, substitute host Dana Perino did something that the more liberal journalists never do as she confronted NARAL president Ilyse Hogue with poll numbers suggesting that most Americans support significant restrictions on abortion in spite of surveys that find most voice support for Roe v. Wade.
On Wednesday’s Today show and NBC Nightly News, correspondent Peter Alexander seized on an ad from left-wing pro-abortion group NARAL targeting Maine Republican Senator Susan Collins and demanding that she oppose any of President Trump’s pro-life Supreme Court nominees.
It was a huge win for the First Amendment and for the pro-life movement. The Supreme Court ruled on Tuesday in NIFLA v. Becarra that California cannot mandate that pro-life crisis pregnancy centers give out abortion information at their clinics. The two sides of the abortion debate had different reactions to this ruling. Guess which side the media went with?
Handmaid’s Tale protests are becoming more and more prevalent around the world – and the liberal media are loving it. Advocating so-called “women’s rights,” these protesters declare defunding Planned Parenthood is the equivalent of Margaret Atwood’s 1980’s dystopian novel The Handmaid’s Tale. The novel – now a media-beloved Hulu show – occurs in a dystopian, misogynist world in which women are valued only for their fertility and are forced to bear children for the upper class.
Of this past Sunday's political talk shows, NBC's Meet the Press went the furthest in informing viewers of Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez's recent statement against Democrats who hold pro-life views as host Chuck Todd brought up the issue with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, and even raised the matter again during the show's regular panel segment. CNN's State of the Union also touched on the issue as CBS's Face the Nation only brought it up vaguely, while ABC's This Week and Fox News Sunday ignored it completely.
On November 16, thousands of women across the country tweeted about their love of birth control. Terrified by the Trump administration’s possible repeal of Obamacare, many women are afraid that (gulp), they may have to pay for their own contraception.
