Media/Political Bias – Me thinks thou dost protest too much!

I had a conversation this morning with a friend of mine, Leslie Davis-Blackwell, about how views of the sanctity of life are biased towards the left by the mainstream media and politicians.  We brainstormed the possible source of this unfortunate diversion from love and compassion and realized it comes from the one in three who carry darkness in their souls. 

One in three in this country has experienced abortion.  I’m not speaking of just women, but men as well.  That statistic applies not just to average citizens, but also journalists, newscasters, and politicians.  No wonder our country is mired in the culture of death.

I cannot honestly say all in the public eye are living in denial but remember …  one in three.  They keep their deep, dark and shameful secret buried.  Instead of being truthful with themselves and accepting the fact they took the life of a precious child, they do all they can to validate their choice by vigorously promoting the pro-choice ideology and categorizing those of us who speak the truth as judgmental pro-life fanatics.

I am not judgmental nor a fanatic.  I used to be pro-choice but grew too exhausted continually suppressing the feelings of guilt and remorse over my abortions.  One can only live a lie for so long before it takes an emotional and physical toll.  Spewing the pro-choice rhetoric slowly soured in my mouth, and I eventually found there were not enough words, bottles of bourbon, drugs or men that could keep the pain at bay.   

It’s no wonder mainstream media and politicians are so vehemently biased.  They are living in the shadows of secrets and lies, afraid to face the light of truth.

Clouds cannot cover secret places, nor denials conceal truth.
