[See NewsBusters for more.] The grisly promoting of abortion on network television continued on Friday as CBS This Morning stood in “awe” of an elderly abortion activist who is fighting Texas’s “so-called” heartbeat bill. Talking to Poppy Northcutt, a 77-year-old who volunteers at abortion clinics, reporter Kate Smith marveled that people still oppose abortion: “Are you surprised that we're having this conversation today about whether or not Roe V. Wade survives?” The co-hosts could barely contain their disdain for Texas as Gayle King cheered, “I'm in awe of Poppy Northcutt, though.” Co-host Tony Dokoupil complained about the particulars, including a provision allowing private citizens to sue violators of the pro-life legislation: “Incredible law. I'm a little uncomfortable with empowering private citizens and rewarding them for policing their neighbors and friends and getting 10 grand for it.”
