Actual CNN Headline: "Candidates make appeal to anti-abortionists"

Of course they mean GOP candidates make appeals to "anti-abortionists," but that isn't even remotely what the report actually describes.

Several GOP candidates attended the screening of a pro-life documentary created by Mike Huckabee and Citizens United. They gave short speeches about their pro-life values and pro-life (or "anti-abortion," as the CNN writer, producer Shawna Shepherd, terms it) agendas.

If the candidates made appeals to "anti-abortionists" that is, people particularly opposed to abortionists over and above those simply opposed to abortions, it's not evident from the report. And that's a key distinction.

I hate to go all dog-whistle, but that's exactly what this CNN report is doing. CNN is suggesting that the candidates are appealing to folks like Scott Roeder, the man who gunned down notorious abortion doctor ("abortionist") George Tiller a few years ago.

Liberals have been slowly losing the abortion battle over the course of the past thirty years. Several Supreme Court cases have chipped away at Roe v. Wade and states are increasingly showing a willingness to push the boundaries when it comes to restricting the availability of abortion on demand. My own generation is the most pro-life generation yet.

Just as we're seeing with the global warming lunatics, it's no surprise that pro-abortion activists are getting nastier as they lose ground.
