Excuse Me, Journalists, But Your Abortion Bias Is Showing

Did you know that Sandra Cano, the "Mary Doe" in the Doe vs. Bolton companion case to Roe vs. Wade, filed a motion in Georgia to vacate the court's ruling?

Neither did I.

The fact that most of the country is unaware of the above fact is the subject of a great column yesterday by Kathleen Parker:
What if the women who helped make abortion-on-demand the law of the land changed their minds? They did.

And what if no one cared? Apparently, no one does.

Or so one might surmise from the media's inattention to the latest motion filed in federal court seeking to set aside the U.S. Supreme Court's 1973 abortion ruling, a reversal of which would return abortion jurisdiction to states.

Doe v. Bolton was the case that extended the reach of Roe v. Wade, and gave us abortion-on-demand, with no restrictions or qualifications. Most Americans don't even know that a woman can get an abortion at any time from conception to the day a baby is due.

Several months ago, Norma McCorvey, the "Jane Roe" of Roe v. Wade, filed a motion in Federal Court to set aside that case. She is now pro-life and seeking to undo the horrors wreaked by legalized abortion. So now the two women whose cases gave us abortion-on-demand have changed their minds and are actively working to reverse Roe v. Wade.

If you think that's news, apparently you don't think like a liberal "journalist".

It's not "The News", it's "The News That Supports Our Enlightened View of The World".

Maybe you ought to write your local newspaper or TV station, or give the editor a call. Ask why they deem this story unworthy of our attention.
