It is 6 AM as I type this post on Mother’s Day. CNN’s 6 AM news hour begins with a synopsis of a number of news stories that will be covered this hour.
One news story will be Georgia’s restrictive new abortion heartbeat bill and how outraged movie stars who live and work in Georgia are over it. Melissa Milano, a woman who thinks that mothers should have a right to murder their children at any point in a pregnancy is blackmailing Georgia lawmakers, yes, blackmailing, by threatening to have the billion dollar movie industry leave Georgia, no matter what havoc it creates for those 90,000 people who work in this industry in Georgia.
After this little synopsis, the camera goes to the news anchors and the female anchor says, GOOD MORNING AND HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
THE NEXT STORY IS ABOUT A FATHER WHO MURDERED HIS YOUNG DAUGHTER. RATHER THAN TOUT HIS RIGHT TO CHOOSE TO MURDER HIS YOUNG DAUGHTER, THEY FAVOR HIM BEING PROSECUTED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW. THEY AREN’T PRO-CHOICE IN THIS CIRCUMSTANCE! AND NO ONE FROM THE MOVIE INDUSTRY IS THREATENING BLACKMAIL IF THE LAW ISN’T CHANGED TO ALLOW THIS FATHER TO MURDER HIS DAUGHTER.
Is there a disconnect here?
