NPR Broadcasts Audio Of Woman Having Abortion

Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.9

NPR aired an 11-minute spot featuring journalist Kate Wells speaking to women outside an abortion clinic in Detroit, Michigan.  They obtained permission from a woman to record and broadcast her abortion procedure. Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America president Marjorie Dannenfelser said, “It is horrifying and inappropriate for a taxpayer funded outlet to air the excruciating moments for child and mother of an abortion.”  Dr. Tara Sander Lee, director of life sciences at Charlotte Lozier Institute, said “The sound of a mother’s suffering as her unborn child is being suctioned from her womb is painful and unforgettable. That child’s heart had already beat over 9 million times and will be heard no more.”
