Pro-abort NYTimes columnist laments “The Worrisome Future of Abortion Rights”

By Dave Andrusko As her new book, “Just a Journalist” makes abundantly clear, former New York Times Supreme Court reporter Linda Greenhouse never let anything as arcane, so out-of-date as impartiality get in the way of advancing the cause of abortion during her long, long career as a powerful reporter. She wrote opinion pieces masked …

The misleading idea of “chipping away” at “abortion rights”

By Dave Andrusko Depending on the venue and their fear factor, pro-abortionists’ use of the metaphor of “chipping away” at “abortion rights” will be supplemented by “under siege.” How could it not be when there have been “hundreds” of restrictions proposed (not passed, by the way) over the past four or five years? For those …

MSNBC’s Roberts: Does Requiring Abortionists to Have Hospital Privileges Make Abortion More Dangerous for Patients?

By Jeffrey Meyer It’s amazing how within a single one-hour television program, the same host can provide balanced reporting on one story but provide completely one-sided coverage of another.  For once on the issue of gun control, MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts provided a balanced perspective of the issue at hand. The same unfortunately cannot be said …

“Chipping away” at abortion is a misleading metaphor

By Dave Andrusko The metaphor of “chipping away” at “abortion rights” was pretty much a household staple in media coverage of the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. And, of course, it was used before and since: how could it not be when there were “hundreds” of restrictions proposed (not passed, by the way) over …

The lesson of the TIME magazine cover story: the truth hurts!

By Dave Andrusko The TIME magazine lead story this week has pro-abortion feminists’ knickers in a knot. We’ve talked several times about the heated response to Kate Pickert’s  “What Choice? Abortion-rights activists won an epic victory in Roe v. Wade. They’ve been losing every since,” and for good reason. Pickert’s account is really two stories …

What’s behind the “rebellion within the abortion-rights cause”?

By Dave Andrusko You knew—you just KNEW—that Kate Pickert’s article in the latest edition of TIME magazine, the one we wrote about late last week,  would provoke a heated response from younger pro-abortionists.  At the time I was only able to read excerpts of the article–TIME had it behind a paywall—but now having read the …

MSNBC’s Alex Witt Asks: ‘What’s It Going To Take To Get Abortion Rights Back On Track?’

By Jeffrey Meyer Editor’s note. This appeared Thursday at Newbusters. Well, there goes any chance that MSNBC might have resolved to drop the phony “war on women” meme in the new year. On the January 3 NewsNation fill-in host Alex Witt interviewed Kate Pickert to push for greater abortion access across the nation, discussing her …

A Tale of Two Editorials

By Dave Andrusko What with an imaginary ‘war on women,’ a real (and crushing) loss in Wisconsin, and a pro-abortion President who seemingly puts his foot his mouth on a regular basis (which could apply to either Bill Clinton or Barack Obama), it’s not the best of times for abortion advocates. We’re going to end …
