The media has got it all wrong. 

A study from the Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) confirmed that there have been 135 attacks against pro-life groups from May-September 2022 and only six on abortion groups. The group concluded that there are 22 times as many attacks on pro-life groups than pro-abort groups but the media still paints life-affirmers as the antagonists. 

Since the Dobbs v. Jackson opinion draft was leaked back in May, there have been a myriad attacks against pro-life groups. Whether it’s fire bombing pregnancy centers, smashing windows of churches, adding obscenities and threatening graffiti messages on sidewalks, or throwing red paint across the exterior of life-affirming organizations, pro-life groups have been under eminent threat.

"The bottom line is that after the Dobbs decision was leaked, there was over 22 times more violence directed against pro-life groups than pro-choice organizations. However, if the media is less likely to cover violence pro-life organizations, the 22 times estimate will underestimate the relative violence against these groups," CPRC noted in its study. 

The group is right. The media barely covers attacks on pro-life groups but makes it top priority when pro-abort groups feel “threatened.” Here are some headlines CPRC mentioned in its study from the pro-abort left.

The media paints abortion activists as the victims when they’re the ones facilitating most violence -- that done to innocent babies.

One pro-lifer was arrested in front of his wife and children for simply stopping a pro-abortionist from harassing his 12-year-old son even though the abortion activist was the one stirring trouble. 

Our current administration is facilitating and permitting extreme bias against pro-life groups. As a matter of fact, the U.S. Department of Justice keeps a documented list of all the times “Reproductive Health Care Providers” were attacked but doesn’t have a list for when pregnancy centers were. 

Life News asked Dr. John Lott, president and founder of CPRC about the bias in the media and he responded as such. 

The overwhelming narrative in the media is the claim those on the right are responsible for most of the politically motivated violence in the U.S. The media has uncritically accepted pro-choice claims of violence without asking for a list of cases.

The bias at this point is undeniable and the media couldn’t even care less.
