What's wrong with this picture?

Nothing. Except the fact that it barely made the news. This is a picture of just the front of the line of the hundreds of thousands of people who gathered peacefully in Washington, D.C., earlier this week in the annual March for Life to be a voice for the voiceless on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Every year this march is the largest demonstration in Washington and yet few people even hear about it. When the Occupy Wall Street protesters took over parks and sidewalks, threw trash in the streets, went days without bathing and made demands for things like student loan forgiveness, all in protest of wanting a better life, they received front-page, almost reverent media coverage. But the media ignore a massive gathering of people standing up for those who aren't even given a chance at life. On a scale of this magnitude, why is one group's concerns more worthy of coverage than another's, whether you agree with them or not? Is it only "approved" views that merit attention?

  1. What I find to be most disturbing is the mimicking of mainstream media from those who support abortion and vilify the successful. I hear the same arguments over and over. I so appreciate your perspective, Ms. Szydlowski. It is so refreshing to read a blog from somebody who tells it like it is; not what mainstream media tells you what it is. In other is obvious that you have really thought things through. Bravo!

  2. BTW.....what an awesome photo from the March for Life!!!
