    • Did It Happen Or Did It Not? April 3, 2010
      It’s been what, three weeks since Rep Emanuel Cleaver claimed he was spit on? And now he won’t talk about it? I know if some guy spit on me, I’d kick his ass! I understand that a politician might choose a different option, but he sure as hell would want that guy punished and not […]

    • “Right Wing Domestic Terrorism” Assumptions April 2, 2010
      So much for the Leftist assumptions and chants of “right wing domestic terrorism” playing a role in the nine Hutaree terrorists. They blast that if a person is a Christian, then they must be a right winger. I find the exact opposite to be true out here, where the Catholics and Christians are usually on […]

    • Phil Hare (D-IL) Is A Sad Fool April 2, 2010
      How a member of Congress can disregard the US Constitution, which they swore to uphold and protect, is frightening. Of course, you won’t see this in the MSM, because they are still salivating over Catholic priests raping young boys. How sad that he thought life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness was in the US […]

      I just got back from a week long trip in Mesa, Arizona. Some comments: The flight from Chicago to Mesa was about 3.5 hours. Not bad, and no headaches this time! Last time I was on an airplane was three years ago. The flight was Chicago to Orlando-about 2 hours, but I got a terrible […]

    • Global Warming Causes…Violence? WTF? March 27, 2010
      As if the Man-Made Global Warming (aka ManBearPig) movement wasn’t crazy enough, it just got a little crazier. Global warming could make the world a more violent place, because higher temperatures increase human aggression and create volatile situations, a new study says. The report combined government data about average yearly temperatures with statistics o […]

Comforting The Pro-Choice Side

Posted by Anthony on March 26, 2010

NPR decided to provide more comfort to the Pro-Choice side of the Abortion debate.

Here’s the memo that was just distributed to all NPR staff:

“NPR News is revising the terms we use to describe people and groups involved in the abortion debate.

This updated policy is aimed at ensuring the words we speak and write are as clear, consistent and neutral as possible. This is important given that written text is such an integral part of our work.

On the air, we should use “abortion rights supporter(s)/advocate(s)” and “abortion rights opponent(s)” or derivations thereof (for example: “advocates of abortion rights”). It is acceptable to use the phrase “anti-abortion”, but do not use the term “pro-abortion rights”.

I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised NPR is coddling the Left on this issue. I’m not going to be a hack and call Pro-Choice people “Pro-Abortion” because that’s not what they are-very few people are actually “pro-abortion”.

But there is nothing wrong with “pro choice” or “pro life”, other than the fact that it leaves little bias to either side.
