“Millions of Americans get a sense of the world through national filters like ABC, CBS, and NBC. So it’s inexcusable when these networks, in whom so much public trust is invested, refuse to report the facts on one of the most pressing human rights issues of our time.” – Lila Rose
Lila Rose, president of Live Action, is asking for honest reporting by the three large American news networks: ABC, CBS, and NBC. The area she is suggesting needs some honesty is, of course, abortion:
It’s time for these networks to end their blackout of the truth on abortion – how it irreparably harms woman, babies, and society.
To ABC, NBC, and CBS: Stop the abortion censorship. Stop flinching from the facts of the abortion debate. Stop the information suppression. Every day, America’s abortion industry kills thousands and wounds thousands more. It’s time to tell the truth.
The site also contains open letters to ABC, NBC, and CBS, explaining how abortion is an important issue, but yet the networks, through things like their lack of reporting on the Kermit Gosnell trial and their over reporting of Senator Wendy Davis, are quick to turn a blind eye to what is really happening.
The media has flinched from the reality of abortion for decades, but the degree to which they mischaracterize and whitewash this issue has been egregious lately. How can you go on about a senator’s sneakers and completely ignore the reason you’re talking about those shoes in the first place: because she’s championing a procedure that literally tears helpless children to pieces and puts women’s lives and health in extreme danger?
The website, petition, and open letters are just the beginning. Live Action plans to host rallies outside of each of the media outlet headquarters sometime in the near future.
