Taking Deception in Journalism to a Whole New Level

Michelle Gress, former House staffer, writes at National Review Online about the media coverage of a recent study on the abortion drug RU-486.

The study was a comparison of subsequent pregnancy outcomes among women who had prior abortions, concluding that there was no difference between surgical or medical abortion on the impact on subsequent pregnancy.

However, abortion in general poses some risk to subsequent pregnancy; so to say there is no difference in long-term risk after having a medical versus surgical abortion is like saying there is no difference in long-term risk after getting into a traffic accident in a sedan versus a motorcycle. It ignores the fact that traffic accidents are dangerous, and motorcycle accidents are much more deadly.
