Odd Exception to Liberal Media Bias on Partial Birth Abortion
Indeed, much of the Mainstream Media has refused to call partial birth abortion “partial birth abortion.”
They have described it as “a certain abortion procedure” -- doubtless because they know that an honest description would make it clear that the procedure is infanticide.
And the headline over the Associated Press story on today’s Supreme Court decision continued that bias, saying that “Supreme Court OKs Abortion Procedure Ban.”
But further down in the story, the AP reporter commits the cardinal sin against political correctness. He writes the following:
The procedure at issue involves partially removing the fetus intact from a woman’s uterus, then crushing or cutting its skull to complete the abortion.Wow! An actual honest description.
But it gets even more graphic.
Abortion opponents say the law will not reduce the number of abortions performed because an alternate method—dismembering the fetus in the uterus—is available and, indeed, much more common.Liberals and feminists say that such straightforward descriptions are “inflammatory.”
But if the truth is inflammatory, what does that say about the people who don’t want it spoken?
Blogger Nick Schweitzer noticed these two passages, and his response was “I’m having a hard enough time keeping down my breakfast after reading that.”
