While many in the media stay silent on a new report accusing the nation’s largest abortion provider of enabling abuse, members of Congress aren’t. On Thursday, pro-life group Live Action held a Washington, D.C. press conference with several members of Congress. The event responded to a new investigative report by Live Action that accused Planned Parenthood of covering up child sex abuse in the #MeToo era. During the event, Rep. Chris Smith, R-N.J, asked “every member of the press” to watch the docuseries connected to the report.
One politician is calling on the media to report “coercion, not in America,” when it comes to healthcare professionals who refuse to participate in abortion.
The networks continue to censor the horrors revealed in abortionist doctor Kermit Gosnell’s trial, but some members of the House of Representatives haven’t kept silent – and they cited the Media Research Center.
On April 11, Representative Chris Smith, R-NJ, demanded accountability from the national media. He began his speech on the floor, asking, “Mr. Speaker, will the decades-long major national news media cover-up of the brutality –and violence – of abortion methods ever end?” Rep. Smith called media reticence an “indefensible silence” that threatens “other women and children at other abortion mills [who] might be at risk.”
