Toward the end of the last 2016 presidential debate, Donald Trump muttered four words that sparked a feminist firestorm: “Such a nasty woman.” Little did he know that celebrities, women’s magazines and pro-choice organizations would reclaim the insult for their cause.
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.
Pro-choice advocacy has been given a place of privilege on Univision’s sister network, Fusion, with a new video being dedicated to the views of Missayr Boker, assistant political director of the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws (NARAL).
In a day when the most innocuous thing can quickly become political, a Doritos Super Bowl commercial has upset some people who want abortion to be an unrestricted right.
During Super Bowl 50, the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) wasn’t about to let biology get in the way of their propaganda.
While live-tweeting its reactions to Super Bowl commercials, NARAL threw science out the window to bemoan “humanizing” a fully-developed fetus.
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.
This was spotlighted on Facebook by NARAL Pro-Choice America: The Economist "Democracy in America" blog is reporting that the site GoFundMe decided it would not allow women to use their site to fund their abortions.
Then the writer Emily Bobrow proclaimed that the women requesting money for these “valuable” operations are brave to withstand pro-lifers, and their abortion funding requests “turn the internet’s trolls into some stone-throwing barbarians out of Shirley Jackson’s ‘The Lottery.’” In that tale, a small town annually stones a member of the community to death. So who’s confusing the killer in this real-life scenario?
Here’s a new oxymoron, even for the liberal media: abortion comedy.
Opening this Friday, writer-director Gillian Robespierre’s “Obvious Child” tells the story of an aspiring young comedian, Donna Stern, who has an abortion after a one-night stand. The film, which focuses on “self-discovery and empowerment” and the “realities of independent womanhood,” garnered endorsements not only from Planned Parenthood and NARAL, but also the media as an “abortion romantic comedy.” The film starring Jenny Slate (“SNL,” “Parks and Recreation”) caught the attention of distributor A24 after premiering at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.
The nation's staunchest pro-abortion lobby has successfully pressed Google to take down numerous crisis pregnancy center ads, Hayley Tsukayama of the Washington Post reported this afternoon (emphasis mine):
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.
What do Cesar Chavez, “raped animals,” Margaret Sanger fans, and Occupy-esque mantras have in common?
They were all present in front of the Supreme Court today. Hundreds of left-wing activists showed up today to attack Hobby Lobby for its objection to the Obama Administration’s HHS Mandate, specifically that the Christian-owned firm pays for abortifacient contraceptives in the employee health insurance plan Obamacare says it must provide.
