Latino Media HIDE True Nature of 9-Month Abortion Bill

The Latino networks, performing in a manner similar to pro-abortion advocacy PACS before a largely conservative audience, chose to say as little as possible about the upcoming Senate vote on the Democrat-led Women´s Health Protection Act. They instead referred to it as an attempt at codifying abortion protections at federal levels, but omitted that it would allow for the legalization of abortion of full-term babies.

Below is the summary of all the coverage given by Spanish-speaking newscasts regarding the bill which would codify the 1973 Roe v Wade. Please note that these reports were broadcast only over Telemundo’s morning talk programs and Univision’s May 11, 2022, show.

ALAN TACHER:  This afternoon, the Senate is holding one of its most important votes in decades to codify abortion rights into federal law. The Supreme Court is threatening to reverse its Roe v. Wade decision, which provides such protection. Democrats do not have 60 votes to pass the bill. Chuck Schumer, Majority Leader of the House warns Republicans to choose between protecting women and ending women’s rights.




REBEKASMYTH: Senate Democrats vote for Roe V. Wade to be made a national law. They are trying to overturn a Supreme Court decision giving states the power to regulate abortion.

MARTIN BERLANGA – The 2022 Women’s Health Protection Act will legalize abortion in the United States. It would replace legislation that states passed to restrict or ban it altogether.

At Univision, host Alan Tacher replicated the words of Majority Leader, Chuck Schumer, who “warns Republicans that they must decide between protecting women or discarding women’s rights.” At Telemundo, it was Martín Berlanga who worried about the “legislation passed by states to severely restrict or simply ban the procedure altogether”.

The wellbeing of unborn children is missing from the bills’ reports. For example, to justify “the provision of safe, legal, and effective access to abortion where a person´s life … when carrying a pregnancy to term would cause substantial pain or suffering … governments must not impose restrictions on abortion which subject women and girls to physical or mental pain or suffering, discriminate against them, arbitrarily interfere with their privacy, or place them at risk of undertaking unsafe abortions.”

We are left to wonder: What about pain and suffering in the womb of the baby, who is, per the bill, most likely conceived by? People (women) “with low incomes, BIPOC, immigrants, young people, people with disabilities, and those living in rural and other medically underserved areas.” Far from being a “health disparity due to social, political, and environmental inequities” exacerbated by abortion limitation, this so-called Reproductive Justice has ended the lives of millions of minority babies who make up the vast majority of legal abortions in the United States- and not, as Democrats insist, to ensure “that the full range of reproductive health care is accessible to all who need it.” Texas, Texas, and Texas are examples of this. 66%, in fact, were abortions that were done on Black and Hispanic woman.

Telemundo, Univision and other corporate-owned media outlets continue to push the liberal agenda. Their disconnect continues with their audience, who deserves better.
