As our world moves more and more toward being tolerant of every possible lifestyle, the media continues to play a major role in desensitizing us to premarital promiscuity, lack of sexual commitment to a spouse and acceptance of abortion.
As few as 30 years ago, the general population of the United States would have been appalled to hear that a presidential candidate had sexual relations with someone outside of his marriage. But today these types of reports are more and more common.
Media bias is just as prevalent in covering the abortion debate as it is any other topic. The media’s slant toward portraying abortion as a justifiable solution to overpopulation, a means to reduce poverty, or an example of women’s rights should be clarified by painting a more accurate picture of the abortion epidemic in the United States. The unfortunate fact is that abortion either has touched or will touch every one of us at some point in our life.
The following articles are just a few examples of the bias in the media.
