The March for Life is taking place today in Washington, D.C. Throngs of pro-life people have gathered near the Washington Monument to celebrate life and speak up for tiny human beings who cannot yet speak for themselves.
Vice President Mike Pence was one of the speakers. Pence, the highest ranking elected official to ever speak at this event, pledged his support of the pro-life cause.
As always, it is interesting to watch the media cover such events and pretend to do so without bias. The terms that they typically use betray their allegiance to the wrong side of this important moral issue.
Rather than use the term “pro-life”, the media insist on saying that these people are “anti-abortion” or “abortion foes”. While technically true, these terms portray pro-lifers in a negative light.
Compare this with how the media describe those on the other side of the issue. Instead of saying that they are “pro-abortion”, they insist on calling them “pro-choice”. That sounds like a good thing, right? Unless, of course, you understand that the choice they are talking about involves ending the life of a baby in the womb.
Be sure that you see through the liberal media’s attempts to sway public opinion on this, and other, important moral issues. Think for yourself and decide which side you want to be on. And for goodness sake, don’t join them in using terms that muddy the waters of moral discussions!
“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.”—Isaiah 5:20.
