Enough is Enough: Pro-Life Group Starts March on the Media Over Abortion Bias

Lila Rose of Live Action has had enough and her pro-life group has started a new campaign, March on the Media, to combat the epidemic of pro-abortion bias when it comes to reporting on abortion issues.

The campaign comes after a new report showed the big television networks gave Texas abortion advocate three times more coverage than they gave to the trial of abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell, who killed babies born alive after abortions.

“Like it or not, the major news networks have huge influence in our country,” said Lila Rose, president of Live Action, in a statement today.

“Millions of Americans get a sense of the world through national filters like ABC, CBS, and NBC. So it’s inexcusable when these networks, in whom so much public trust is invested, refuse to report the facts on one of the most pressing human rights issues of our time,” she said.

Rose added: “The media has flinched from the reality of abortion for decades, but the degree to which they mischaracterize and whitewash this issue has become egregious lately. How can you go on about a senator’s sneakers and completely ignore the reason you’re talking about those shoes in the first place: because she’s championing a procedure that literally tears helpless children to pieces and puts women’s lives and health in extreme danger?”

She condemned the “rampant bias, censorship, and suppression in how America’s major news networks cover abortion.”

Live Action unveiled a new March on the Media web site that urges pro-life advocates to take an active role in responding to media bias.

The web site contains a petition that reads:

I call on the United States’ major distributors of news and information to do their jobs.

A press that censors what abortion actually does to babies – dismemberment, poison shots through the skull, asphyxiation – and that censors and suppresses scientific information on fetal development (pain capability, heartbeat, biological humanity), is not objectively reporting the facts of abortion.

A press that lionizes abortion advocates and recites their slogans, while ignoring Kermit Gosnell’s severing of born children’s spines, is not objectively reporting the facts of abortion.

A press that buries the rampant abuses and dangers to women inherent in our nation’s vast and unregulated abortion industry, while claiming to report on women’s health, is not objectively reporting the facts of abortion.

To ABC, NBC, and CBS: Stop the abortion censorship. Stop flinching from the facts of the abortion debate. Stop the information suppression. Every day, America’s abortion industry kills thousands and wounds thousands more. It’s time to tell the truth.

“The media has flinched from the reality of abortion for decades,” Rose said, “but the degree to which they mischaracterize and whitewash this issue has become egregious lately.  How can you go on about a senator’s sneakers and completely ignore the reason you’re talking about those shoes in the first place: because she’s championing a procedure that literally tears helpless children to pieces and puts women’s lives and health in extreme danger?”

Rose says she wants to point the media in a new direction.  “A change is long overdue for our big news distributors,” she said.  “It’s time for these networks to end their blackout of the truth on abortion – how it irreparably harms women, babies, and society.

“The abortion-friendly reporters and executives in New York and Washington will not come to terms with this fact unless we bring it to their door,” Rose said.  “So that’s what we’re doing.”
