Media Crosses a Line in March for Life Coverage

January 22 marked 46 years since the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion-on-demand through all nine months of pregnancy. Every year, prolife people gather in Washington, D.C., to protest the Court’s decisions in Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton. The national March for Life also brings attention to the lives lost to abortion. Since 1973 there have been an estimated 59 million abortions. Prolife people are used to scant or slanted media coverage of the March for Life. However, this year the media and our national discourse crossed a bright red line as the media began relentlessly attacking teen minors after the students were accosted by several adults. Their original reporting was proven false by video evidence, and the inaccurate reports have led to death threats for the teens and even reporters fantasizing about committing violence against them.

Will Sex Ed End Abortion? No, it Won't

This is a frequent criticism prolife people hear: we should be reducing abortions by stopping our efforts to educate people about the value of unborn children and stop advocating for their legal protection. Only by focusing on sex education (or contraception) can we achieve abortion reductions, they say. Is it really true? Is expanding sex education the answer to ending abortion? Is teen pregnancy driving this problem? Looking at real-world examples, the answer is no. That criticism also brings up another important question: why just reduce abortions? If abortion takes the life of an innocent human being, what's an acceptable legal level for that? Who would argue we should cap homicides at 10,000, and not care so long as the number stays below that?

‘Shout your Abortion’—to Kids

The online video series “Kids Meet” invited Amelia Bonow, founder of the “Shout Your Abortion” movement as a guest to discuss her abortion with children. Although she tells the children that the prolife movement spreads “propaganda” with the name “prolife,” she seems to have no problem spreading her own biased euphemisms to children by saying the abortionist “sucked the pregnancy out.” She also encouraged the children to think of the unborn baby as an unliving “sea cucumber,” insulted adoptive children and parents by saying that adoption is worse than the option of ending the baby’s life, admitted to using her abortion as a method of birth control, and said abortion was part of “God’s plan.”

Latest CDC Abortion Report Shows Further Decline

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released their latest annual report on abortion statistics, showing that abortion rates are lower than ever. Though it is unacceptable that any number of children should die because of abortion, it is encouraging to see that the number of lives lost decreases each year—slowly but surely. The total number of reported abortions in the U.S. decreased 2% from 652,639 in 2014 to 638,169 in 2015. This number has been steadily dropping.
