Pro-choice violence - will it get reported?
Pro-lifers have been painted in the media as violent, hateful, and intolerant. Such a description fits the media's pro-choice bias.
Unfortunately, the constant repetition of that portrait has also colored the general population's image of pro-lifers.
Yes, there have been violence and crimes committed. Some fanatics have even gone so far as to kill in a misguided understanding of what it means to be pro-life.
But genuine pro-lifers have always been quick to denounce any such acts. And the number of such acts have been exaggerated and repeated.
Moreover, when it comes to abortion-related violence, the truth is that the pro-choicers are far more likely to commit acts of violence. For every act of pro-life violence, there are many more acts of pro-choice violence.
One problem is that the pro-choice MSM tends to avoid or downplay mention of this reality. I'd love to see a major objective study of violence by someone in the MSM (there have been studies, but they have been done by pro-life groups, so they get dismissed).
Imagine if such a study was done that showed the truth?
Of course, it's hard to imagine anyone in the MSM doing such a study. And even if someone di, it's even harder to imagine such a study getting widely reported on.
Pax et bonum
