The mainstream media did one thing proving they work for the Abortion Lobby

23

The mainstream media loves to attack Trump and conservatives.

In the current era, that’s all they do.

And they just did one thing to prove they work for the Abortion Lobby.

Planned Parenthood is the largest provider of abortion in America.

But with millions of Americans standing against them, they should be considered controversial in the mainstream media.

Instead, the media paints them as reasonable, and their opponents as “fringe extremists.”

This is plainly seen through their coverage of abortion legislation.

Following the passage of any pro-life bill, like the recent ones in Alabama and Georgia, the media spends the entire day blasting it as “extreme” and “restrictive.”

But when it is a pro-abortion bill, they remain silent or heap praise at any passing mention of the laws.

Just look at the passage of Illinois’ extreme abortion law, which is much more radical than the recent law passed in New York to allow abortion up to the moment of birth.

The media was silent, with none of the major broadcast networks even mentioning it.

NewsBusters reports:

On Wednesday, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker signed into law a new abortion bill that is being called more radical than New York’s law that was passed in January.

So far none of the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, NBC) have reported on the Illinois law that – among other things – does away with that state’s ban on partial birth abortions.

This continues the broadcast network news trend to ignore passage of far-left abortion legislation while depicting state laws meant to protect the rights of the unborn as “extreme.”

From the morning of May 7 (when Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed the Life Act into law) through the morning of June 13 (the day after Illinois’s law was signed), the Big Three networks filled their evening and morning shows with 3 hours, 20 minutes of coverage often including loaded language depicting these new pro-life laws as “extreme” and “restrictive” attacks on women’s rights – as opposed to “protective” of the rights of the unborn.

This is how the media supports the Abortion Lobby.

They paint those who oppose abortion as extreme, and then ignore any abortion legislation that any reasonable person would actually consider extreme.

Late term abortion is a barbaric practice the vast majority of Americans oppose.

So mentioning it on TV only hurts Planned Parenthood, whose employees the media often brings on as “experts” on the issue.

Do you think the media is in the pocket of the Abortion Lobby?

  2. Major provisions of Communism since the 1880s have included control and domination of communication and
    education. That has been accomplished. Taxpayer (forced) payment of abortion (murder) of babies now being supported and demanded by many so called progressives (truly regressives).
    Margaret Sanger advocated “a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is already tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.”
    Sanger and Hitler, quite a pair.
    They wanted and got the same thing – eliminate undesirables and the inconvenient.
    Their evil offspring – PLANNED PARENTHOOD (SANGER) and
    NAZI Holocaust (HITLER).
    That Planned Parenthood gets anything from taxpayers either directly or indirectly from other tax supported organizations is a TRAVESTY and in my mind criminal.
    Planned Parenthood is NOT about parenting or parenthood.
    Planned Parenthood is about ABORTION which is HOMICIDE.
    Question is: when is it MURDER?
    For those who do not want children here are two acceptable options.
    Voluntary abstinence and voluntary sterilization, they both work.
    Women have the choice to NOT GET PREGNANT.

  3. Abortion is MURDER. Murder is now on the table. If they murder babies, we can murder them without being arrested! God, I pray for their deaths!

  4. Of course the media are supported by the left and Planned Parenthood. The fake media are merely a propaganda wing for the left, pushing abortions and the rest of the leftwing agenda. That’s why their ratings are low. People no longer trust many of the mainstream media outlets. It’s like we already live in a communist country with televised propaganda supporting the fake media’s chosen party, the Democrats. This is why we need to keep President Trump in the white house, and we need to elect pro-Trump Republicans to Congress so we can get legislation passed to unravel all of communist tactics the left has put in place.

  5. The Demoncrats Fight Song: “Kill those babies, Kill those babies, Kill those babies, Kill those babies, Kill those babies, Kill those babies, Kill those babi___________________________________________

  6. We need Trump, desperately. We need him to not only counter-act the Democrat revolution of abortion, loss of Freedom of speech and out-lawing guns, and Muslims being voted into the already deeply racist Democratic party. Please make no mistake, we are one election away from Sharia law and a Muslim majority Congress.

  7. Kill the murderers kill the murderers kill the murderers kill the murderers kill the murderers kill the murderers IF they can murder, then so can we

  8. This article doesn’t prove that the mainstream media works for the abortion lobby. When I first heard Serrin Foster, Executive Director of Feminists For Life, speak at Stanford University at the end of 1998, she mistook me for a Republican, and told me ninety percent of the press is Democrat.

    Instead of demonizing Democrats, if pro-lifers *really* want to end abortion, it’s going to have to be bipartisan. I told Jim Frey of Berkeley Pro-Life over a decade ago that we (Democrats) never see pro-lifers venture beyond their own base. Rather than reach across the aisle to Democrats, feminists, liberals, etc., and try to bring them on board with protecting unborn children, they just play to the same old Ronald Reagan / Oliver North crowd.

    If pro-lifers *really* want to end abortion, opposition to abortion must come from across the political spectrum. Pro-lifers are going to have to venture beyond their own base and convince Democrats, feminists, liberals etc. to distinguish abortion from arguably victimless crimes like marijuana; to argue on secular grounds that the unborn are persons (secular arguments are religion-neutral, and thus applicable to *everyone*, including atheists and agnostics) and convince Democrats, feminists, liberals, etc. to see the killing of the unborn on par with domestic violence, hate crimes against LGBTs, etc.; and make the case to Americans that it’s possible to protect prenatal life without taking to draconian measures violating a new mother’s privacy and civil liberties in this regard.

    The animal rights movement, like the Democratic Party, is dominated by secular progressives. The animal rights movement, like the Democratic Party, is divided on abortion. This either indicates animal rights really are a bipartisan cause which conservatives can support alongside liberals, or it means many liberals are uncomfortable with abortion! So far, pro-lifers haven’t even managed to convince the majority of animal activists that killing the unborn is on par with killing animals.

    Robert Casey, the former Democratic governor of Pennsylvania, said he believed a pro-life liberal Democrat would easily be elected president: conservatives would vote for a pro-lifer, and liberals would vote for a Democrat articulating opposition to abortion as a secular and nonsectarian civil rights issue. In 1994, even archconservative Pat Buchanan had kind words for Robert Casey! If pro-life Democrats had greater visibility in past decades, perhaps Carol Crossed would have been the first female speaker of the House.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi admits that the Democratic Party’s support of abortion has not been a winning issue. Pelosi spoke to the Washington Post about whether her party should support pro-life candidates or require that candidates support easy access to taxpayer-funded abortions through all nine months of pregnancy.

    Struggling after heavy election losses in 2016, many in the Democratic Party are debating whether to support pro-life candidates, especially in rural areas where voters tend to be pro-life. Some, like Pelosi, appear to be recognizing that the party’s support of abortion-on-demand-up-to-birth is losing them voters.

    Rather than seeing the abortion issue as a real loser for Democrats, especially in red states (crucial with winning the Electoral College!), Pelosi blamed Hillary Clinton’s loss on pro-life voters themselves! Clinton supported the unpopular platform of forcing taxpayers to directly fund abortions, and she promised to nominate Supreme Court justices who would uphold Roe v. Wade and abortion on demand up until birth, if elected.

    Pelosi told the Washington Post : “You know what? That’s why Donald Trump is president of the United States—the evangelicals and the Catholics, anti-marriage equality, anti-choice. That’s how he got to be president. Everything was trumped, literally and figuratively by that.”

    Pelosi, who supports abortion but describes herself as a Catholic, said many in her Catholic family are pro-life. She also mentioned U.S. Sen. Bob Casey from Pennsylvania, a Democrat with a mixed record on abortion.

    “You think I’m kicking them out of the Democratic Party?” Pelosi said.

    Jay Ware, a black Democrat in Illinois, said on the Democrats For Life email list as early as 2004 that it should be automatic: just as the Republican Party supports pro-choice candidates like Rudy Giuliani and Arnold Schwarzenegger in blue states like New York and California where pro-lifers can’t win and even has Republican president George W. Bush campaign for them, Jay Ware said the Democratic Party should similarly support pro-life Democrats in red states where pro-choicers can’t win, and have Democratic presidents campaign for pro-life Democrats, etc.

    “The moral test of government is how it treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the aged; and those who are in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy and the handicapped.”

    –Hubert H. Humphrey

    Fifty-nine percent of Democrats favored a ban on partial-birth abortion. (Gallup Poll, November 1, 2000)

    Eighty-nine percent of Americans favored informed consent for women seeking abortions. (Gallup Poll, 2002)

    Sixty-seven percent of Democrats would outlaw some or all abortions. (Gallup Poll, May 5-7, 2003)

    Forty-three percent of Democrats agreed with the statement that abortion”destroys a human life and is manslaughter.” (Zogby Poll, December 2004)

    Seventy percent of high school senior females say they would not consider abortion if they became pregnant while in high school. (Hamilton College/Zogby Poll, January 2008)

    Seventy-seven percent of Americans believe abortion should have stricter limitations. (CBS News Poll, January 2008)

    Twenty-nine percent of Democratic Convention delegates disagreed with the statement, “Abortion should be generally available to those who want it rather than under stricter limits or not permitted.” However, 52 percent of Democratic voters as a whole disagreed. This large discrepancy between party leadership and membership indicates a serious problem that Democrats For Life of America wants to rectify.

    During the 2008 campaign, Reverend Jim Wallis (of Sojourners) advised Barack Obama to support a plank in the Democratic Party Platform that would aim to reduce abortions by focusing on supporting low income women and making adoption easier. (This is the 95-10 Initiative, advanced by pro-life Democrats in Congress.) Reverend Tony Campolo served on the Platform Committee and has issued a strong statement in support of a pro-life position.

    A “conscience clause” which appeared in the 2000 Democratic Platform (but not in 2004) acknowledges that there are pro-life people in our Party and we respect their views. It reads as follows:

    “We respect the conscience of each American and recognize that members of our Party have deeply held and sometimes differing positions on issues of personal conscience, like abortion and the death penalty. We recognize the diversity of views as a source of strength and we welcome into our ranks all Americans who may hold differing positions on these and other issues.”

    Kristen Day of Democrats For Life said in 2014, “Roughly a third of the Democratic Party is pro-life. And while many do not call themselves liberal, they share the values which seem to identify with liberalism, particularly a commitment to helping the vulnerable and providing a social safety net.”

    The Democratic Party platform should support: Animal Rights, Defending the Affordable Care Act, Ending Citizens United, Ending Marijuana Prohibition, Giving Greater Visibility to Pro-Life Democrats, Gun Control, Net Neutrality, Raising the Minimum Wage to $15 an Hour, Responding to the Scientific Consensus on Global Warming, and a Sustainable Energy Policy.

  9. They will reap what they sow (Galatians 6:7)! As they sow DEATH by abortion (it should rightfully be called MURDER but if they called it what it is they’d find NO SUPPORT) they reap DEATH (by mass shootings).

  10. Vasu Murti is the perfect example of how Democrats are incapable of reasoning with.EVERY story about abortion, here he is spouting quotes and his little statics, TRYING to justify abortions.But yet he is a vegetarian and supports animal rights.Well, so do I. I love animals and supports the end of cruelty. BUT, HE places MORE value on an animal’s life than of an innocent baby being denied life. Or more importantly as most of us see it as MURDER of an innocent baby by abortion!!!
    He also points out, as other Liberals do, that religious beliefs should not be brought into the equation when discussing abortions. Well, sorry Liberals, politically correct or not, GOD very much fits into this equation and I will not deny HIM!!!And Vasu, if you are reading these comments, stop quoting that lying,hypocritical, treasonous Pelosi.That woman, as others, belong in jail!!!!

  11. iF A WOMAN GETS An ABORTION THEN RIGHT THERE AFTER THE ABORTION FIX HER TO WERE SHE CAN’T HAVE CHILDREN. if she does not agree to being fixed then charge her with murder if she goes through with the abortion.

  12. Sigh. You’d think the unborn-right-to-lifers would immediately understand the animal-right-to-lifers! The case for animal rights should be readily understandable to the millions of Americans opposed to abortion on demand.

    “Although I may disagree with some of its underlying principles,” writes pro-life Democrat Karen Swallow Prior, “there is much for me, an anti-abortion activist, to respect in the animal rights movement. Animal rights activists, like me, have risked personal safety and reputation for the sake of other living beings. Animal rights activists, like me, are viewed by many in the mainstream as fanatical wackos, ironically exhorted by irritated passerby to ‘Get a Life!’ Animal rights activists, like me, place a higher value on life than on personal comfort and convenience, and in balancing the sometimes competing interests of rights and responsibilities, choose to err on the side of compassion and nonviolence.”

    Although dominated by secular progressives valuing personal autonomy, privacy and civil liberties, the animal rights movement, representing a cross-section of mainstream secular American society, is NOT “officially pro-choice,” but IS divided on abortion. In a 1992 interview on Dennis Prager’s conservative talk show, when specifically asked about the animal rights position on abortion, Ingrid Newkirk, co-founder of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), admitted, “We’re divided.”

    Former television game show host Bob Barker is a conservative Republican and an animal activist. Tony LaRussa of the Animal Rescue Foundation is a political conservative. Vegan labor leader Cesar Chavez was pro-life. Vegan civil rights leader Dick Gregory was pro-life. Former Washington Post columnist Colman McCarthy, a devout pacifist, has expressed opposition to abortion, and in the 1980s was critical of Reverend Jesse Jackson for having changed sides on the issue.

    Dixie Mahy, past president of the San Francisco Vegetarian Society, has been vegetarian for sixty years, vegan for forty of those sixty years, and identifies herself as pro-life-and-pro-animal Matthew Scully, a conservative Catholic and former speechwriter for George W. Bush identifies himself as “Pro-Animal, Pro-Life.” Catholic Concern for Animals is pro-life-and-pro-animal. Reverend Frank Hoffman’s http://www.all-creatures.org Christian vegan website is pro-life-and-pro-animal Compassion for animals is a fundamental tenet of the Baha’i faith, which endorses vegetarianism, says abortion is more a matter of individual conscience, but concludes, without taking a position on abortion, life should not be destroyed.

    John Stuart Mill wrote: “The reasons for legal intervention in favor of children apply not less strongly to the case of those unfortunate slaves — the animals.”

    Animals are like children. Henry Bergh, founder of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), successfully prosecuted a woman for child abuse in 1873, at a time when children had no legal protection, under the then currently existing animal protection statutes. This case started the child-saving crusade around the world.

    In Christianity and the Rights of Animals, the Reverend Dr. Andrew Linzey writes: “In some ways, Christian thinking is already oriented in this direction. What is it that so appalls us about cruelty to children or oppression of the vulnerable, but that these things are betrayals of relationships of special care and special trust? Likewise, and even more so, in the case of animals who are mostly defenseless before us.”

    When told the animal rights movement is divided on abortion, Serrin Foster, Executive Director of Feminists For Life, said understandingly, “The Children’s Defense Fund is also divided on abortion.” Feminists For Life has many vegetarians and vegans. Serrin identifies herself as a vegetarian.

    From 1992 through 2003, James Dawson, raised Catholic and now a Buddhist, published Live and Let Live, a pro-life / animal rights / libertarian ‘zine. The ancient eastern reincarnationist religions Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism all predate Christianity, all oppose abortion, all teach ahimsa, or nonviolence towards humans and animals alike to the point of vegetarianism, all are vegan-friendly, and all teach that abortion and war are the karma for killing animals, and that therefore, we cannot end abortion nor bring about world peace until first we abolish the killing of animals.

    This knowledge, however, does not rest with everyone. Not all pro-life-and-pro-animal people advocate the reincarnationist strategy for ending abortion and bringing about world peace. Shay Van Vlieman, founder of Vegans For Life in the late ’90s, said she doesn’t expect to see a vegan president in her lifetime: she would just be glad to elect a president who will work to overturn Roe v. Wade. And she insists she is not a Republican, but a libertarian!

    During the late 1990s, Rachel MacNair, a Quaker pacifist, feminist, vegan, past president of Feminists For Life, moderated an email list for pro-life vegetarians and pro-life vegans. Rachel is now a psychology professor, and has written several books on nonviolence. In 1998, the Animals Agenda ran a cover story on the debate within the animal rights movement over abortion. Vegan congressman Dennis Kucinich (D – Ohio), one of the most liberal members of Congress, was pro-life throughout most of his political career.

    Pro-life vegetarians and pro-life vegans are found within the “consistent-ethic” movement: pro-lifers opposed to capital punishment. A significant number of “consistent-ethic” Christians were / are vegetarian or vegan: Rose Evans, Ruth Enero, Rachel MacNair, Albert Fecko, Carol Crossed, Bill Samuel, Mary Krane Derr, Mary Rider, Father John Dear, etc.

    The threat of overpopulation is frequently used to justify abortion as birth control. On a vegan diet, however, the world could easily support a human population several times its present size. The world’s cattle alone consume enough to feed over 8.7 billion humans. Even if abortion advocates argue shifting to a plant-based diet, a vegan diet, isn’t enough to stave off overpopulation, in light of the data showing the depletion of energy, food, fresh water, land space, raw materials and resources as well as the heavy contribution to air and water pollution, deforestization, and global warming caused by a meat-centered diet, how do abortion advocates — warning about overpopulation consuming the world’s resources — justify consuming animal products?

    Steve Kaufman, head of the Christian Vegetarian Association, was raised Jewish, and is now serving in the United Church of Christ, America’s largest pro-choice Protestant denomination. Steve expressed interest in Democrats For Life, his only reservation was whether Democrats For Life favors criminalizing abortion. Some animal advocates and activists (like Catholic vegan columnist Colman McCarthy) oppose abortion, but don’t think criminalization is the answer.

    In 2004, on the Democrats For Life email list, Maria Krasinski mentioned a poll which found animal activists evenly divided on abortion. This either indicates animal rights really are a bipartisan cause which conservatives can support alongside liberals, or it indicates many liberals are uncomfortable with abortion!

    In 2014, Kristen Day of Democrats For Life said: “Roughly a third of the Democratic Party is pro-life. And while many do not call themselves liberal, they share the values which seem to identify with liberalism, particularly a commitment to helping the vulnerable and providing a social safety net.”

    The Democratic Party platform should support: Animal Rights, Defending the Affordable Care Act, Ending Citizens United, Ending Marijuana Prohibition, Giving Greater Visibility to Pro-Life Democrats, Gun Control, Net Neutrality, Raising the Minimum Wage to $15 an Hour, Responding to the Scientific Consensus on Global Warming, and a Sustainable Energy Policy.

  13. Vasu: PLEASE believe me when I tell you, you live too much through others opinions and views.You are a Democrat as we ALL are painfully aware .Nobody is perfect.But,in your defense, you are one of the few Democrats that is polite, when posting, and that does speak volumes as to your character.I am also a great supporter for animal rights.You spoke of standing by the road having things s hurled at you,for defending animals.Not to top you Vasu, but I was arrested for standing up for these innocent animals being tortured and killed.
    I know I’m quite a bit older than you, so please TRY to heed my advice;For the love of GOD or whoever you worship, STOP quoting this one and that one in all of your postings. If YOU have a personal opinion, then just state that!
    And one more thought for you to mull over, MOST women do view abortions as murder, as I do.So unless God or Jesus Christ comes down themselves and tells me differently, that’s what I will always believe. Maybe YOU should view a video of what actually happens during an abortion, to that innocent soul being torn apart.Its HORRIFYING!!Maybe just maybe, being a Democrat or not, your opinion will change… I leave you and peace… P.S. And there still isn’t any reincarnation.Sorry.

  14. I have to admit that, even though I’m a Conservative and strongly pro-life, I am pro abortion when it comes to elected politicians who vote in favor of these extreme permissive laws.

  15. Han Solo:Thank you for your post. It’s been a long day and I needed a laugh.What you posted, God forgive me, but I the same thought has crossed my mind when I view these politicians…

  16. Please tell where it says that animals have rights. THEY DON’T!!!!! And the ACA was meant to fail, which it has. WHY do you want it???? It sucks. And our founding fathers were very wise to give us the second amendment. We have the RIGHT and the DUTY to bear arms to defend ourselves from those who would harm us. And better do some checking on net neutrality You have no idea what you are wishing for. And $15 an hour minimum wage would be a disaster. But you have no understanding as to why. Put yourself in the shoes of those who struggle to run a business. I would lose my job because my employer could not afford to pay me.

  17. There ARE no rights for animals!!! FACT. NOWHERE in our Constitution or in the Bible does it say that animals have rights! As a matter of fact, God tells us that he gave us animals for our use. Please tell us where it says that animals have rights?? Animals do not have rights, but HUMANS have responsibility. God commanded us to be good stewards of what He gave us, so we are not to mistreat animals.

  18. Late term abortions are murder, pure and simple. At that point the brain is developed well enough to feel pain and suffer the agony of being torn apart.Calling the instrument a curette, (a benign sounding word) doesn’t change it’s function of tearing a baby apart. There must be a special place in hell for abortion practitioners and the people who support them.
