Morning Joe Offers No Viewpoint Balance in Interview with Planned Parenthood President

MSNBC’s Morning Joe host Mika Brzezinski and First Look host Yasmin Vossoughian offered no viewpoint balance in a pro-abortion conversation [1] on Morning Joe featuring Planned Parenthood president Dr. Leana Wen.

“We’re not going to stand for politicians taking away our bodily autonomy,” Wen said, before launching into in a defense of late-term abortions.

Vossoughian asked Wen about the “danger” to women if abortion is illegal, not offering any alternative viewpoint offering the case that abortion causes terminal danger to preborn children. Neither Vossoughian nor Brzezinski asked any questions about the scientific fact that at conception the entire, distinct, DNA blueprint of a separate human being — separate from a mother — is present.

“Politicians have no role dedicating medical practice,” Wen asserted, without any challenge or acknowledgment that at least 29 states, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures, have “fetal homicide laws that apply to the earliest stages of pregnancy.” [2]
