    It shouldn't be considered remarkable that all three major broadcast networks offered a news story on the tens of thousands who came for the 2017 March for Life. But it is. Between the morning and evening shows, the networks gave it almost 22 minutes of airtime altogether. To illustrate how shocking that number is, consider that last year, ABC gave the march 35 seconds of coverage. NBC ignored it altogether. Ditto for CBS. There are two obvious reasons for this change. First, unlike the Reagan administration or the two Bush administrations, the Trump administration made modern history by sending...

    I Am A Woman Who Went To The Women's March And The March for Life. The Differences Were Stunning. A week after the Inauguration of Donald Trump, politically active women across America could choose to make themselves heard at two major rallies revolving around women's issues. They could attend a pro-choice, feminist march known as the Women's March or they could wait one week and attend the 44th annual pro-life, March for Life. Some lucky few, such as myself, were able to attend both. The marches had their similarities. Both marches were held in D.C. Both marches were heavily attended...

    In an interview with ABC News that aired earlier this week, President Donald Trump complained to anchor David Muir about the mainstream media’s lack of coverage for the March of Life. When Mr. Muir asked if Mr. Trump could hear the protesters from the progressive Women’s March on Washington from the White House, Mr. Trump responded, saying: “No, I couldn’t hear them. The crowds were large, but you will have a large crowd on Friday, too, which is mostly pro-life people. You’re going to have a lot of people coming on Friday. And I will say this, and I didn’t...

    Yesterday’s March for Life proved that the shouts of the pro-abortion crowds may be unending and vociferous, but the painful cries of aborted babies, much louder and much more heart-rending They came by the hundreds of thousands to Washington, D.C. yesterday, just as they did for the past 44 years. Continuing their march in an almost total media blackout that was part of their lives for almost half a century; ridiculed, scorned and passed by for more than three generations, they always kept coming, keeping the annual March for Life, prominent in their lives.
  • Chris Matthews: If you believe abortion’s murder, “you go after the person” who had the abortion

    Chris Matthews gave generally respectful treatment to pro-life activist Abby Johnson, who appeared on last night’s Hardball in the context of discussing the March for Life. But Matthews challenged Johnson on the position—generally adopted by the pro-life movement—that the only person who should be punished is the doctor performing the abortion, and not the woman who chose to have one. Said Matthews: “If abortion’s a murder and the person who goes to an abortion clinic is given no sanctions, no punishment whatever, there’s something that doesn’t square there . . . if you believe it’s murder, you go after the...

    It’s unclear how many people marched in the streets of Washington D.C. on Friday in support of life, but one time-lapse by Students for Life of America attempted to capture the magnitude of the march. In time-lapse videos posted to Facebook and Twitter, the organization was able to show exactly what mainstream media organizations failed to show: that hundreds of thousands of people were marching on Washington in support of life and against abortion.
  • Liberal Media Bend Over Backwards To Avoid Describing March For Life As Pro-Life

    Daily Caller ^ | 1/27/17 | Peter Hasson
    Liberal media outlets bent over backwards to avoid describing the March for Life as pro-life, relying exhaustively terms like “anti-abortion” or “abortion opponents” to describe the hundreds of thousands of pro-life marchers in Washington, D.C. on Friday. “Anti-Abortion Groups Hold Triumphant Rally After Obama Years” was how the Associated Press titled its coverage of the march, later referring to the pro-life marchers as a “politically ascendant anti-abortion movement.” “Vice President Mike Pence told the crowd at the March for Life that anti-abortion policies were a top priority of the new administration,” was how the AP story described Pence’s speech, which...

    Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Donald Trump (Screenshot) (CNSNews.com) - Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Donald Trump, said Friday at the March for Life that the right to life is a God-given right – not a privilege or a choice. “It is no coincidence that the first rights stated in the Declaration of Independence is the right to life. It is a right. It is not a privilege. It is not a choice. It is God-given. It is unique, and it is beautiful,” Conway said.  Conway, who is pro-life, told attendees at march that the White House hears them...

    Today I got up and went on my computer with my coffee, as I usually do. But today was a special day; the 2017 annual March For Life. To be truthful, even though I am pro-life, I havenÂ’t really paid much attention to it in previous years. Now that Trump is president, and I am a supporter, I have been very active on Twitter and Facebook. The fact that we have a pro-life president and vice president is totally inspiring. Women like myself who believe life begins at conception feel hope again. Naturally, I went on Twitter right away today...

    Vice President Pence assured anti-abortion protestors Friday that their cause has friends in the new administration, vowing that officials "will not rest" until the "pro-life" culture is restored in the U.S.  Speaking at the annual March for Life in Washington, Pence proclaimed that "life is winning again in America" and outlined how the Trump administration would advance anti-abortion policies.  "Be assured, along with you, we will not grow weary. We will not rest until we restore a culture of life in America, for ourselves and for our posterity," he said at the event. Pence, the first sitting vice president to...

    A moment of indecision kept Karina from becoming a statistic. Seeking but never receiving love from her mother, she left home at 17 in a tailspin. “I started cutting myself,” Karina said. “I worked, but I did drugs. I drank every day. I didn’t care about my life.” Fearing she might be pregnant, Karina went to a drugstore. There she stood, facing a shelf of pregnancy tests but unable to acknowledge reality by selecting one. Sensing her situation, a woman approached and gave her a card for the Women’s Resource Medical Center, a Las Vegas nonprofit that offers free pregnancy...

    National Catholic Register ^ | Jan. 24, 2017 | Matthew Archbold
    C-SPAN has informed the National Catholic Register that they plan to televise the March for Life live this year. That is good news to pro-lifers because we are so used to being ignored by most (if not all) of the mainstream media. In some years it seems the only network to give the March its due is EWTN (which will also be broadcasting the March.) It's almost funny (in the saddest way possible) that every year hundreds of thousands of people march right through the heart of Washington D.C. and each year they are promptly ignored. It's as if we're...
