HuffPost’s coverage of the Georgia “heartbeat bill” described the pro-life legislation as delusional, indicating clear bias against pro-life activists, despite widespread American support for restrictions on abortion.
HuffPost journalist Lydia O’Connor called the law “extreme” and said that it’s “not rooted in reality.”
“The proposed law would ban abortion as soon as a doctor can detect a fetal heartbeat, which usually happens at around six weeks into a pregnancy,” O’Connor wrote, and then claimed — without evidence — “That’s before most women even know they’re pregnant.”
Members of the mainstream media plant negative verbiage and monikers against pro-life activists, positioning them as reactive, “anti” activists. HuffPost did the same this time.
In its photo caption, HuffPost called pro-choice activists “abortion rights advocates” while describing pro-life activists as “anti-abortion demonstrators”
