The language of ideologues

I couldn’t help but notice the typical bias in the press release on Feb. 9 concerning Dr. Alveda King.

She was scheduled to deliver the keynote address at the Republican Party’s “Freedom Dinner” in Charleston. Following the journalistic “rules” of political correctness, the writer labeled Dr. King “anti-abortion” rather than “pro-life,” knowing that those terms that begin with the prefix “anti” are generally perceived in a more negative manner.

It’s interesting that the so-called “pro-choice” crowd are never called “anti-life” even though they are responsible for, or are complicit in, the killing of thousands of pre-born children. They certainly don’t deserve the title “pro-choice” since the innocent human beings they destroy obviously have no say in the “choice” to terminate their own lives.

Thank God for pro-life voices like this speaker, the niece of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. “He was pro-life, pro-abstinence before marriage, and based his views on the unchanging Word of the Bible.” — Alveda King.
