The media bias with abortion coverage is rampant, reports Live Action. Perhaps the most recent examples are the lack of coverage of abortionist Kermit Gosnell's trial and the Associated Press' Twitter support for Sen. Wendy Davis’ filibuster against pro-life legislation. In response, Live Action is taking a stand against the media bias Aug. 8 with their March on the Media rally.
"The media has flinched from the reality of abortion for decades," said Lila Rose, Live Action president, in an article. "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.
"A change is long overdue for our big news distributors," Rose added. "It's time for these networks to end their blackout of the truth on abortion — how it irreparably harms women, babies, and society."
