Out of touch? Ill-informed? Trauma sustained by meeting obnoxious pro-lifers in their youth? I can’t psycho-analyze the level of media paranoia on the A word anymore than I can figure out Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s.
This article is a good one, though. Because on abortion, as on other issues, the media have ceased to report, instead opining excessively. (I opine excessively, too, it’s just that when I write for papers my pieces are actually in the op-ed section.)
So the next time you watch the pro-life community dismissed as a fringe element, ask yourself: Who’s really out of touch with the American people here?
