A media blackout on the March for Life?

On January 22, 2012, more than 400,000 people rallied in Washington, D.C. for the 39th annual March for Life in protest of the Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade.  But if your only source of news is the mainstream media, you likely never heard about it.  It's amazing how the media simply ignores what they don't like.

Have you heard about the growing of people in France rallying in support of "traditional" marriage?  Over the past several weeks the numbers have grown to more than 1.3 million people.  Even French homosexuals have joined the ranks.

Ireland recently saw it's largest pro-life rally, with more than 30,000 turning out in Dublin against abortion.

By any sensible measuring standard, both numbers are too great to simply ignore.  Remember: If it isn't reported, it must not have actually happened.

In years previous, the media reported "tens of thousands" of those marching for life, and focused on a very small number (I've never seen more than a dozen) "pro-choice" protesters.

The 40th annual March for Life will be held this Friday, January 25, 2013 in Washington, D.C.; it is delayed a few days this year because of the second inauguration of President Obama.

Call me a cynic, but I can't help but wonder how many different ways the media will find to ignore protesters numbering at least as many as last year, and perhaps even more than were present today at the inauguration ceremonies.
