Regarding Life...

Leave it to the New York Times to glorify a woman who "suffered the pains" of trying to abort her 4 month old fetus... Focusing on El Salvador, where abortion of any kind is outlawed and highlighting the women there who seek them out illegally, the article also gives great tips on how women in this country can perform their own at-home abortions. I'd say that's very responsible journalism, indeed...

The article , entitled "Pro-Life Nation," also sheds light on the secretive methods women in El Salvador use to obtain back-alley abortions, trying, whenever possible, to make the concept of valuing life seem as archaic and oppressive as possible.

The New York Times has never made a secret of it's liberal agenda and by trying to apply it's values to a country that is focused more on protecting human life than catering to convenience it makes it's own preference all too clear.

This is not to say that I don't sympathize with the women who are victims of rape or incest or have ectopic pregnancies that are criminalized by no real fault of their own. Still, I can't see why it's so hard to understand a culture of valuing life. But that's the New York Times, isn't it?

All the news that's fit to print, and then some...

You got that right about the NY Times.
