Abortion Coverage

K-Lo, I’m glad you ran the NRLC statement yesterday, because I’m not seeing it much in the liberal press accounts, with the exception of the Washington Post. They all rely on Planned Parenthood as the plaintiff, and then some shift to a White House statement or the Justice Department. On CNN radio last night, they ran audio of Gloria Feldt talking about “women’s health,” and then dismissed the pro-life side with a little summary of their own, no audio. Very typical. One report suggested a controversial ban on a procedure was overturned, but that’s backwards. Look at the polls, reporters, if you’re going to use the adjective “controversial.” Most Americans oppose partial-birth abortion, and so did most of Congress. Reporters should write the ban on a very controversial procedure was overturned.
