Pro-lifers to march against media censorship of 'gruesome' abortion

← return to Water Cooler

ABC News will have some unexpected visitors with much on their minds Thursday afternoon. The network’s headquarters in the nation’s capital will be the focal point of the Life March on the Media rally, an event organized by pro-life factions who are weary of what they deem press “censorship” of abortion.

“The media has flinched from the reality of abortion for decades,” says Lila Rose, president of Live Action, a pro-life group that courts the interest of younger activists through social media. “We call on the press to end the censorship of what abortion actually does to our smallest children and women as well as an end to the lionizing of abortion advocates.”

The group already has sent letters of protest to America’s “big three” - ABC, along with NBC and CBS - demanding honest and factual reporting about abortion, which they deem a “gruesome procedure.”

Miss Rose says she plans to “expose the media as collaborators with the abortion industry.” She is particularly vexed by a recent report from the Media Research Center that revealed the networks gave pro-choice Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis three times as much coverage as the murder trial of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell, effectively turning the young lawmaker into an instant celebrity, and a “folk hero.”

Among those who also plan to rally at ABC’s office, located some six blocks north of the White House: Christian Robey, political director for the aforementioned research group; Charmaine Yoest, president of Americans United for Life, and Jill Stanek, an OB-GYN nurse turned pro-life activist
