Once again, media ignores March for Life

According to the Media Research Center (MRC), the coverage from ABC, CBS, and NBC was even worse than in previous years. Katie Yoder, staff writer and analyst for MRC’s Culture department, reports that ABC mentioned the March for Life once, but it was in the context of people being stranded due to the winter storm.

Regardless, she tells OneNewsNow this year's rally had greater significance because of last summer's release of the undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing the illegal sales of aborted baby body parts.

"During the march, I was there, and there were billboards up playing footage from these videos while the marchers were marching," she shares. "That makes this march especially relevant this year because of the Planned Parenthood videos."
