Yahoo! Finance not only thinks that killing off babies in the womb is a solution for diaper poverty in the U.S. but also says Americans’ nappy woes should be blamed on pregnancy centers.
With the headline “America is facing a diaper crisis, and the anti-abortion movement is making it worse,” the article’s author, Senior Editor Sandra Salathe, alleges that “Roughly one-third of U.S. families are unable to afford diapers necessary to keep their babies dry and clean.”
Salathe neglects to mention that diaper prices, among other baby items such as formula, have been severely impacted by climbing inflation and the ongoing supply chain crisis under President Joe Biden. Instead, she says that pregnancy centers are somehow responsible for the “physical,” “mental,” and “economic” stress that families endure trying to keep their babies diapered.
“The coronavirus pandemic has played a heavy role in this crisis, and as households seek help from nonprofit organizations, anti-abortion centers (AACs) may be misrepresenting the extent of their services,” Salathe writes.
Using information fed to her by the leftist, pro-abortion activist group Equity Forward, Salathe amplifies claims that Heartbeat International, a Christian network of pro-life resource organizations, and the more than 3,000 lifesaving pregnancy centers in the U.S. are using their donations and public funding to pay for the upkeep of their services instead of helping vulnerable members of their community.
Never mind that a majority of voters favor public funding for pregnancy centers and that it is abortion facilities like Planned Parenthood that are more focused on giving out sex books and harmful abortion drugs than diapering babies they think should be dismembered in the womb.
Neither the article’s author nor Equity Forward disputes the fact that Heartbeat International and other pro-life organizations distributed 1.2 million packs of diapers to babies in need in 2019. Instead, Salathe and Equity Forward Director Ashley Underwood take issue with the fact that the same pregnancy centers they want investigated and shut down for human rights violations (how ironic) aren’t always equipped to provide baby supplies to 100 percent of the families that walk through their doors.
Nationwide pregnancy centers serve close to 2 million people annually by offering hundreds of millions of dollars worth of free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, counseling, care from licensed medical professionals, STD testing, and, yes, material items for babies and mothers such as diapers. That number is likely to increase in pro-life states where more women will be carrying their babies to term thanks to abortion bans.
There are more than 2,500 pregnancy centers in the U.S. that offer items like diapers to people in need yet the corporate media, Hollywood, the nation’s largest abortion provider Planned Parenthood, and Democrats call these organizations’ efforts to aid mothers and babies “deceptive,” “emotionally manipulative,” “fake,” and “disinformation.“
There is no doubt that the coordinated effort to downplay the important work of pro-life advocates and doctors in favor of abortion extremism is furthered by the corporate media. Salathe’s article in Yahoo! Finance proves to be no exception.
