Check out this headline from Reuters.“Recession linked to more abortions, vasectomies.”The article begins by telling the story of a nurse who was suprised by her pregnancy. I suppose she wasn’t aware that she chose to have sex. Anyway, surprised and fearful of the economy she decides that abortion is the prudent choice.

The article then goes on to suggest that more people are opting for abortions and vasectomies because of economic fears. Where do they get this information? Why they made it up of course.

The recession may be a factor influencing more Americans to opt out of parenthood with abortions and vasectomies, although there is no data available yet to suggest a trend.

Even so, there is some anecdotal evidence that would-be parents are factoring the rough economic times into the most personal of reproductive choices, some experts said.

In 2005, the last year for which data is available, the U.S. abortion rate fell to the lowest level since 1974, according to the Guttmacher Institute in New York, a nonprofit group focusing on reproductive issues.

This is not merely blatant abortion advocacy and media bias, this is media BS. Look at that again, The recession may be a factor leading to more abortion although they admit to absolutely no statistical evidence. But they claim Even So, we have anecdotal evidence even though the latest data we have shows abortion at the lowest rate since 1974.

Somebody explain to me how this can be labeled reporting and not advocacy? If Reuters was capable of shame, they ought be ashamed. But wait, there is more.

The anecdotal evidence they tout, abortion hot lines claim to be getting lots of calls. Yup, that is it. Not even statistics from abortion providers, just a claim that their phones are busy. But rest assured Reuters has a moral to this made up story.

As with many other nonprofits, abortion assistance groups are being inundated with requests for aid just as funding is drying up.

Ah abortion providers (a multi billion dollar industry) claim that their phones are busy, we need more government money and Reuters dutifully passes it off as reporting. Reuters: The PR division of Planned Parenthood.
