Media was dishonest

Talk about dishonesty of the media. Reporting on events of Jan. 22 in Washington, D.C., the major newspapers highlighted the pro-abortion demonstrations, making them sound widespread, while the March for Life was made to seem a minor “anti-choice” effort.

The fact is there were more than 50,000 Americans – including an encouraging number of young – in support of sanctity of human life. Only a handful of pro-abortion demonstrators showed up at the Supreme Court, lost in masses of pro-life supporters.

The Democratic presidential candidates used this Roe v. Wade anniversary to pride themselves as great protectors of “choice” for women. In reality, this choice means in 9 out of 10 cases abortion – the killing of an innocent human being. What kind of choice is that? If they would really care for the health of women, they should not be silent about physical and emotional harm resulting from procured abortions.

Medical technology proves the life and development of a human child in his mother’s womb. Most Americans now acknowledge that abortion kills children.

Why then do the politicians and the media continue to defend this war on the unborn?
