It is always the loudest people who are heard and it always seems to be the pro-lifers who talk the loudest. A lot of Americans have feelings this issue and choose not to attend rallies and harass women as they leave clinics because they are living their lives comfortable with the law that supports a woman’s right to choose. A lot of women who themselves receive abortion services do not openly speak out about their experiences because they will be criticized by the people who are against abortions, even though they are legal.And while abortions are obviously a hot topic, they are not as important an issue as education- which done correctly could lower the amount of abortions sought by teens who are ill-advised on what they should be doing to prevent pregnancies in the first place.

That should include food, clothing, child care and education.That is the least that society can do for her is they are going to insist that she bear a child she cannot afford.

Ed Stoddard writes about conservative issues and attends conservative meetings because his beat is the religious right. It’s his job to write about these issues. And when that assignment is up and he goes on to another posting and maybe another country, someone else will cover these issues. According to your logic, a journalist who writes a lot about one group, attends its meetings and reads its publications must agree with it. In my career at Reuters, I’ve written about communists and conservatives, singers and scientists, Muslims, Buddhists, New Agers and neo-Nazis — without ever being any of them.

And Reuters, who is owned by the English Reuters group, which is been shown to have a conservative bias is the vehicle to which Mr. Stoddard finds ample “journalism” time to research and report. And I hate to say it, but now I’m suspicious of the Pew Research Center, whose good work in the past seems to be subtly bending towards it’s family roots (Pew organizations were funded by the conservative family members of the Sun Oil Corp.). Sorry, I just don’t buy this as respectable journalism. My sh*t detector is pining hard! (see http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?tit le=SourceWatch for more information)
