Media treats abortionist as unbiased source when discussing Proposal 5, ignores her conflict of interest

By Vermont Right to Life Committee

Dr. Lauren MacAfee, who performs abortions at the UVM Medical Center and previously at Planned Parenthood, has made several recent media appearances (WCAX, WPTZ, VT Public) promoting passage of Proposal 5, which would enshrine unrestricted unregulated abortion in the Vermont Constitution. Media outlets have failed to acknowledge her conflict of interest and her extensive involvement in the passage of H.57 and Prop 5.

MacAfee testified before the Legislature multiple times in support of H.57 and Prop 5, and is currently appearing in Planned Parenthood’s advertising promoting a “yes” vote on the Constitutional amendment. In this segment of her testimony, MacAfee explains how she performs abortions in the second trimester and beyond. Other abortionists, however, can use different methods and techniques.
