Media Defends Planned Parenthood, Not Catholic Church

Journalism: When the abortion giant's funding was in jeopardy, the media provided 24/7 coverage with a decidedly liberal slant. When the feds assaulted First Amendment religious freedom, you could hear the crickets chirp.

Secular progressive bias in the media was never more evident than in the past few weeks with the difference in coverage of two major news stories — the temporary cutoff of funds from the Susan G. Komen Foundation to Planned Parenthood and the ultimatum from the Obama administration that the Catholic Church and its institutions had a year to find a way to violate their consciences and beliefs and provide contraceptive services as mandated by ObamaCare.

A study by the Media Research Center (MRC) shows that in the first 60 hours after the Feb. 1 announcement that Komen was cutting off funding to Planned Parenthood, no fewer than 13 major stories appeared on CBS, NBC and ABC morning and evening news shows with 35 clips and quotes coming from supporters or representatives of Planned Parenthood and only 11 from Komen representatives or supporters.

By contrast, MRC notes, when the Obama administration announced on Jan. 20 that it was giving religious institutions one year to comply with a mandate for coverage of sterilization, abortion-inducing drugs and contraception in their health plans without a co-pay, it took CBS 10 days to air one news brief on the controversy while NBC and ABC said nothing for two weeks.

On ABC's Feb. 2 World News, Claire Shipman concluded that the apparent outrage at the breast cancer charity "shows the passion in this country among women on the issue of women's health care access to services. I think we're going to hear a lot more of that over this campaign year."

Well, not if it involves the Catholic Church and the Health and Human Services mandate that Catholic institutions such as hospitals, charities and schools must provide contraceptive services and coverage and that conscience protections written into current law are now null and void.

If there is any coverage, it will probably be along the lines of right-wing zealots threatening women's right to choose, just as the networks hyped "right-wing pressure" on Komen in initially cutting off its funding of Planned Parenthood.Scissors-32x32.png

Here we see the meme in the MSM, all women support Abortion Rights.

 

We Pro-Lifers need to address this...."women's health care access to services" the equating access to access to womens health care. When this is brought up, the question needs to be asked.."Abortion is health care?".

That the media would promote abortion over life has to rank right up there in the element of surprise category with "wild bear poops in the woods".
