While the U.S. Senate failed to pass legislation last week which would require providing care to a baby born alive from an abortion, it hasn’t all been bad news for pro-lifers. The Trump administration issued a rule which removes Title X funding from organizations, like Planned Parenthood, which perform or refer for abortions on February 22. Naturally, the media pounced, with two particularly glaring examples coming from The New York Timesand NBC News.
Ever since the 1985 book The Handmaid’s Tale premiered as a Hulu series in 2017, the pro-abortion crowd can’t help referencing it in relation to Republicans. I know, I’m sick of it, too. One of the latest to jump on that bandwagon is Michelle Goldberg in her column “The Republicans of Gilead” for The New York Times.
Goldberg focuses on “a series of scandals, each offering telling glimpses of the sexual ethics of Trumpworld’s golf-shirted Commanders.” She is completely silent, however, on the scandals plaguing Planned Parenthood, which includes the coverup of statutory rape and sex trafficking. What does that say about Planned Parenthood’s “sexual ethics?”
