Pitching in to help the helpless

Yesterday 650,000 people marched in frigid temperatures in Washington DC to protest the genocidal mass murder of over a million Americans each year.

Yet most major media outlets ignored or downplayed the story. Can you imagine there would have been a similar lack of coverage if the same number of people had marched on DC to support same sex marriage or an end to the war in Afghanistan?

Compare the coverage of Occupy Wall St, which involved a few hundred people, to the annual March for Life which musters hundreds of thousands in the coldest part of the Eastern winter.

What you can do to help is write a letter to your favorite media outlet and ask why they didn't devote a hundredth of the coverage they spent on Occupy Wall St. to the Walk for Life.
