A pro-life row?
GetReligion reports:
...some of the coalition’s leaders accuse [pro-war] Dobson and other national antiabortion leaders of building an “industry” around relentless fundraising...

Some of the biggest groups in the movement, including Focus on the Family and National Right to Life, are under attack from fellow activists who accuse them of turning a godly cause into a money-grubbing industry.
Sorry but I’m not surprised nor am I by the pro-murder media bias:
How often do you hear that 20 percent of all pregnancies in the United States are terminated, or that there are an estimated 1.3 million performed a year (according to the Guttmacher Institute)? How often do you hear that abortion has been legal in the country for 34 years?

When reading news stories about anti-smoking groups and their attempts to restrict people’s ability to light up, one is frequently told how many people smoke, that kids smoke and that people die from smoke. When you read news reports about the number of people who lack medical insurance in this company, you frequently hear the 40 million-plus number tossed around with the subset of children who lack insurance. Why not with abortion stories?
Hallowedground reminds us of the objective truth of the matter — I care about the babies too.
To compare the anti-abortion movement to the anti-slavery movement in a news story would be incredibly inflammatory.
And true.

But don’t get played.
