ChelseaAbortion, MediaLeave a Comment

For the past few weeks news outlets and the blogosphere have been buzzing about the new world wide abortion study from the World Health Organization and the Guttmacher Institute. Most of the numbers are “lost in ideological fog” as Deirdre McQuade puts it, but that doesn’t stop people from reporting and commenting on what these abortion numbers mean. For the … Read More

Fox to Air Abortion Documentary

ChelseaAbortion, Media1 Comment

“Facing Reality, Choice,” will air Saturday, Oct. 27, at 9 p.m. ET on FOX News Channel. It profiles three women and their “agonizing decisions to have their babies or terminate their pregnancies.” I’m not quite sure how this will effect, or add to, the abortion debate as a whole.

Last week I told you about the hit piece the NY Times did on the abortion laws in El Salvador and the fact that the entire article was based on false information. The article claimed that Carmen Climaco was sentenced to 30 years for having an illegal abortion when she was actually convicted of strangling her newborn infant. Well, this … Read More

Earlier last year Jack Hitt, a reporter for the New York Times, wrote an article attempting to explain the horrors of criminalized abortion, using the case of a woman who was allegedly put in jail in El Salvador for having an abortion.
