How times change. All the news that’s fit to print…
Name the major American newspaper that ran an expose on what goes on in abortion mills entitled “The Evil of the Age.” Give up? The answer is the New York Times. No, you haven’t missed anything: the expose ran in the paper’s August 23, 1871 edition. …
“Evil.” “Wholesale murder.” To see how much has changed in 143 years, just consider what the Times had to say about Kermit Gosnell, who last year was convicted of three counts of murder in connection with late-term abortions at his Philadelphia clinic.
While conceding that the “details of the crimes are horrific,” the Times insisted that “the Gosnell case does not really speak to the broader abortion debate.”
On the contrary, the Times regarded attempts to push back the “commonly defined date of viability from 24 weeks to 20 weeks or even earlier,” to be a “part of a larger push to prevent women from exercising their reproductive rights.”
I look forward to the Times’ next about-face.
