Latino Media HIDE True Nature of Nine-Month Abortion Bill

While the Latino networks performed in a similar manner to PACS, a pro-abortion advocacy group, they chose not to speak about the upcoming Senate vote regarding 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 for full-term babies.

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



Univision’s ¡Despierta América!

ALAN TACHER:  This afternoon, the Senate is holding one of its most important votes in decades to codify abortion rights into federal law. As the Supreme Court prepares to overturn Roe v. Wade’s ruling that guarantees this protection, it is taking place. Because Democrats lack the required 60 votes, this bill will face hurdles. Chuck Schumer, the Majority Leader in Congress warns Republicans about having to decide whether they want to protect women or eliminate women’s right.


Telemundo’s Un Nuevo Día

REBEKA SYTH: Senate Democrats are expected to vote for a Bill that makes Roe v. Wade national law. This is an attempt to alter a Supreme Court decision which gives the states authority to limit abortion.

MARTIN BERLANGA : The 2022 Women’s Health Protection Act (MarTIN BERLANGA) would allow abortion to be legalized nationwide and replace any state legislation which severely restricted or banned the practice.

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”.

Both reports do not address the welfare of the unborn. 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 was home to 66% of abortions performed in 2021 on Black or Hispanic females.

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