Sady Doyle writes for Elle.com a fashion and beauty website for women. She recently came out criticizing Newsweek magazine on a December cover story entitled “America’s Abortion Wars.”
The publication was writing on the struggle to end abortions in America. A relevant topic particularly with the controversy this previous year involving a number of videos produced by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP). CMP went undercover disguised as representatives of a research company interested in buying baby body parts off the abortion giant.
However, as a pro-abortionist, Doyle was not offended by the article itself, what upset her was Newsweek’s cover story image depicting a baby.
In her articled titled Why does Newsweek’s Abortion wars Cover show a cartoon fetus instead of a woman Doyle states she was “flabbergasted.”
There are a couple of reasons for this.
First, pro-abortionists are always disturbed when the conversation on abortion focuses on the child being killed instead of the mother. According to abortionists, the rights of the mother supersedes the rights of the child. The discussion on the child’s right to live is irrelevant.
Her article title reveals the second biggest problem she had with this image. When discussing abortion, they prefer to use the term fetus, an innocuous word that removes any hint of a human life being terminated.
Unfortunately for Doyle, the image that Newsweek used clearly shows what is being aborted is not a collection of cells but a baby with a head, nose, legs, hands, feet and arms. According to Doyle it looked like a baby and not a pregnancy.
Doyle writes, that Newsweek’s image, “sums up what’s wrong with how we talk about abortion… everything is about the fetus, which is humanized, and the actual pregnant person is erased.”
This is why those in the pro-abortion movement have opposed any attempts requiring women seeking an abortion to view an ultrasound of the baby they are about to kill. Some states have these laws and pro-abortionists hate them.
Bad for business, I guess.
So the image on Newsweek’s cover reveals what is at the heart of the abortion debate and Doyle doesn’t like it.
That image said more than its literary-allowed thousand words. It gives a face to the 57 million babies aborted since abortion was legalized in America.
Well said Dean; I appreciate the tone and insight you provided. I tried my hand to speaking to this sort of topic when there were blue and (many more) pink flags planted on the Parliament Hill lawn depicting the abortions of male and female persons; the other dirty little secret to eliminating fetuses is the fact that females are selectively eliminated from the gene pool.
