Liberals -- like Joe Lockhart on CNN on Monday -- claim Fox News isn't "journalism" because it was created "to promote conservative Republican political ideas." For the contrast, see MSNBC's most popular host Rachel Maddow on Monday promoting the passionate liberal/Democrat boilerplate of Dr. Leana Wen, the new leader of Planned Parenthood, and the pro-abortion protests planned for Tuesday. It's like the abortion-rights version of a Larry King infomercial on arthritis medication.
Since 1973, when Roe vs. Wade ushered in what would eventually lead to abortion on demand, including partial-birth abortion and even the failure to protect babies born alive after failed procedures — the pro-life movement has achieved few legislative victories. That may be about to change. While New York and several other states have passed statutes effectively allowing infanticide, more conservative states are passing “heartbeat” bills and other restrictions.
On her MSNBC show, Joy Reid says that recently-adopted abortion laws are "send women back to the Dark Ages," and are essentially "turning all of America into Gilead from The Handmaid's Tale."
The lead editorial in Thursday’s New York Times, “How to Help Protect Abortion Rights,” crossed over from laying out a pro-choice stand and into full-blown pro-abortion, Planned Parenthood-promoting activism. But don’t despair, the Times is there to help women repressed in those troglodyte states with a handy checklist of abortion-rights, er, “reproductive-rights advocates” about groups offering assistance.The editorial page doesn’t think much of pro-lifers who exercise their right to protest abortion clinics. The solution: Become a Planned Parenthood volunteer!
As NewsBusters has previously reported, the networks ignored the outrageous story about Pennsylvania State Rep. Brian Sims harassing an elderly pro-life protester outside of a Philadelphia Planned Parenthood clinic and threatening to dox her. Cable news was not much better. Only Fox News bothered to give the story airtime.
It takes one “smirk” from a conservative teen in a MAGA hat to generate a national news meltdown, yet prolonged verbal harassment from a Democratic state representative towards an older woman praying in protest at a Planned Parenthood clinic hardly gets any mainstream attention. Neither ABC, CBS or NBC nightly news programming paid any attention to Pennsylvania State Representative Brian Sims’ 8-minute plus video of him bullying a peaceful pro-life protester.
On April 22, Democratic Kansas Governor Laura Kelly vetoed SB 67, a bill which would have merely informed women about the possibility of abortion pill reversal. But it’s not just the Kansas governor, some liberal media outlets are complicit in denying women the full-range of information when it comes to the abortion pill.
Another year of TIME’s 100 Most Influential People means another promotion of Planned Parenthood. Dr. Leana Wen came on as the abortion giant’s new president in November 2018, replacing the outgoing Cecile Richards, who was included twice before, and already Wen made TIME's 2019 list.
What happens when you combine Nina Burleigh, liberal Newsweek writer who infamously wanted to give Bill Clinton oral sex for keeping abortion legal, with Cecile Richards, former president of billion dollar abortion giant Planned Parenthood? Only your typical pro-abortion media propaganda.
The New York Times finally caught up with the surprise hit pro-life movie Unplanned on the front of Tuesday’s Arts section, “Anti-Abortion In Hollywood – The makers of Unplanned have a hit despite hurdles.” Reggie Ugwu reported from a screening under the headline “With Unplanned, Abortion Opponents Turn Toward Hollywood.” But the Times never even reviewed the movie, unlike the flood-the-zone coverage it provided to the documentary of pro-abortion liberal icon Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and found critics to rebut Unplanned's assertions.
On Wednesday's Full Frontal show on TBS, late-night "comedian" Samantha Bee began what is allegedly a comedy show by railing against recent efforts to curtail abortion, including both the passage of heartbeat laws to protect unborn babies, and the recently released film Unplanned recounting a former Planned Parenthood employee who turned pro-life.
Dr. Leana Wen got a hero’s welcome on The Daily Show With Trevor Noah on March 21. Noah gushed that Wen, who has now been the president of Planned Parenthood for 4 months, has “one of the most impressive resumes of any human being I have ever read” and has “been a badass from day one.”
