26 Jan CNN’s Anti-March for Life Bias
Fifty years ago, the constitutional right to abortion was invented by the U.S. Supreme Court. Since then, tens of thousands of pro-life activists have shown up each year, marching on January 22nd to urge lawmakers, justices, and citizens to overturn that shameful decision.
This year was no different. Despite frigid temperatures, tens or hundreds of thousands of activists marched down the streets of Washington, D.C. As the below video shows, these people packed the roads – peacefully making their voices heard. Watch that video here:
Unfortunately, CNN (1.00) decided that pushing a pro-abortion agenda was more important than protecting life – the lives of unborn children, their mothers and fathers, and that of medical professionals who every day violate the Hippocratic Oath to “do no harm.” This is just one of many reasons their parent company Turner (1.00) ranks so poorly on the 2ndVote scale.
Indeed, CNN didn’t mince words as Americans marched, touting polling which showed most Americans don’t want Roe v. Wade overturned. They proclaimed support for legalized abortion. But buried in that same story was 56% of Americans’ belief that there should be fewer abortions. If we didn’t know how America’s corporate media works, we’d be shocked that a desire for fewer abortions didn’t appear except in the last few paragraphs of the article.
This same bias showed in a post-March article which said pro-lifers would want “extreme restrictions” or “outright bans” on abortion. None of that type of pejorative phrasing was found when touting polling about police reform during marches and riots in 2020, and CNN didn’t bother to mention that pro-life marchers are always – not sometimes, but always – peaceful, in sharp contrast to leftist protesters and rioters.
We all know CNN will never change their ways and continue to support woke, leftist views. But we should encourage them to actually report the truth, not outright lies about a peaceful march. Let them know what you think about their bias today! Use your voice.
