If you only read the mainstream media, you probably know it’s cold and snowy in Washington, D.C., today.  But you probably don’t know that thousands of pro-life Americans braved the tundra to march for life on Washington – unless you caught the Washington Post article labeling the 41st Annual March for Life as a bunch of “abortion foes.”

That’s right.  While the media is busy covering up abortion-loving Wendy Davis’s past – including abandoning her daughters and leaving her husband the day after he finished paying off her law school bills – they’re working hard not to cover the March for Life.

Are Bridgegate and Richard Sherman’s rant making today such a busy news day that there’s just no room for the March for Life?  Or does the media, desperate to make you think being pro-life is an “extreme” position that will “die off” with the elderly, just want to hide the fact that the young now lead the pro-life movement?  Twenty-something March for Lifer and president of Students for Life America, Kristan Hawkins, labeled her generation the “pro-life generation.”

She’s right.  In a recent study, 44% of 18-24 year olds identified themselves as “pro-life” and 45% identified as “pro-choice.”  Twice as many viewed abortion as a “bad thing” as those who viewed it as a “good thing.”  Additionally, a plurality selected “abortion should only be legal in the cases of rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother” as the position they agreed with most.  This is hardly the “abortion on demand” position the media touts as “mainstream.”

But, even if the media took no notice of the march, that didn’t stop their favorite Pope from tweeting his support.
