Conservative talking heads Pat Robertson and Bill O’Reilly each took on the complicated subject of birth control and poverty last week.
Both pro- and anti-choice activists often dwell on women’s reasons for abortion, even though they’re legally unimportant. Unfortunately, this discourse distracts from the real issue here, which is women’s basic right to bodily autonomy and self-determination.
Over the past year, Ann Coulter has repeatedly justified terrorism against abortion providers.
A conservative organization complains about the bias of a PBS program, but offers nothing to refute the program’s claims.
A disturbing implication of “abortion reduction” is that our society should more closely monitor women who want abortions and the reasons they want abortions.
The Salon editor appears on the O’Reilly Factor and tells Bill that he has "blood on his hands."
Bill O’Reilly is a notoriously imposing figure; his brash manner and
inability to let his guests respond to obscene questioning must make
the prospect of visiting his show terrifying.
Murdered abortion doctor George Tiller had been a favorite target of The O’Reilly Factor since 2005, with O’Reilly calling Tiller a "Nazi" who was "operating a death mill."
According to Bill O’Reilly, Amanda Terkel is a “villain” because “she observed
that Factor host Bill O’Reilly blamed an 18-year-old for her own rape
and murder on air and subsequently agreed to host a fundraiser for [the
Alexa Foundation,] a non-profit group that supports rape survivors.”
Americans should thank God for Barney Frank’s leadership through this fiscal crisis, but of course, Bill O’Reilly has to question Frank’s “manliness” — not understanding Frank is twice the man O’Reilly will ever be.
