Life Links 10/25/11

Reuters provides a classic example of poor journalism in this piece by Katy Migiro. Is this an article or an editorial on the legality of abortion in Kenya? Where do those statistics on abortion deaths come from? Migiro doesn't tell us but a quick google search indicates the source is this report from the pro-abortion Center for Reproductive Rights. The report's methodology is extremely shaky. Basically, they think the reported statistics are too low, so they interview a bunch of abortion proponents and make a guess.

It's almost as if Migiro went to pro-abortion groups and asked, "What would you like me to write for you?"

Presidential candidate Herman Cain further clarifies his position on abortion during an interview with CBN's David Brody.
Brody: Are you for some sort of pro-life amendment to the Constitution that in essence would trump Roe v. Wade?

Cain: Yes. Yes I feel that strongly about it. If we can get the necessary support and it comes to my desk I'll sign it. That's all I can do. I will sign it.

An abortion protester is planning on running in the primary for Rep. Keith Ellison's seat in Minnesota and using his campaign to display graphic images of abortion on television.
Gary Boisclair announced Monday morning he is running against Ellison in the DFL Primary -- and he made his campaign platform very clear.

"The platform is life, liberty and justice under God," said Boisclair. "Very simply, I am fighting to bring an end to legalized child killing. I will fight in this campaign to bring that to the forefront."
Local television stations, including FOX 9, would have no choice but to run the ads. FCC rules dictate that if the ad comes from a legally qualified and certified candidate for federal office, the TV station must run it uncensored.

Here's how a local ABC News station describes a child found dead on a porch.
The Philadelphia Coroner's Office said on Monday that it was a fetus, not a fully-formed baby, that was found on a porch this weekend.

The fetus weighed less than two pounds, the coroner said, and would not have been from a viable birth.
