Terry Mattingly at GetReligion has persuaded Ken Woodward and the Notre Dame Journal of Law, Ethics & Public Policy to let him post Woodward's exceptionally informative article on the language used by the New York Times in coverage of the abortion controversy. The pro-abortion advocacy position of the NYT -- as indeed of every major U.S. news source -- is not in doubt. What is revealing is the extent to which the Times's editors are prepared to sacrifice clarity, brevity, and intelligibility in headlines and news stories in order to "frame the narrative" in a politically advantageous manner.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Great piece by Woodward. Anyone notice the new gender-testing equipment from Acu-Gen Biolab? It determines the BABY's gender at only 5 weeks after conception! That's right, the company's blurb calls them "mother" and "baby." Only weeks after a pregnant mom even knows she's pregnant, and weeks before she contemplates abortion, the BABY is a boy or a girl! How will pro-aborts continue the language deception? "Is it a male product of conception or a female clump of cells?"
