(CNSNews.com) – Pro-life activists held a rally outside of ABC Studios in Washington, D.C. Thursday to “demand honest reporting” and to protest “the mainstream media’s censorship of the truth regarding abortion.”
The rally was hosted by Live Action, a non-profit pro-life organization.
Over 53 million abortions have been performed in the U.S. since the Supreme Court decided to legalize abortion in Roe v. Wade and over one million abortions are performed each year, noted Christian Robey, political director at Media Research Center, the parent company of CNSNews.com.
“Now is the time for the media to cover both the facts and also the culture of death that surrounds this grisly industry,” Robey said, criticizing major media networks ABC, CBS and NBC for “lavishing praise on their hero, Wendy Davis” and devoting “three times as much coverage to lauding Wendy Davis as to covering the atrocities of so-called Dr. Gosnell.”
Davis, a state senator from Texas, made headlines in June for her 11-hour filibuster of a bill banning late-term abortions that was drafted in response to abuses at Gosnell’s abortion clinic in Philadelphia. Despite the protest, which drew hundreds of abortion supporters to the statehouse, Texas Governor Rick Perry signed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act into law after it passed in a special session.
