CNS Labeling Bias Watch
Topic: continues its history of biased, inaccurate terminology regarding abortion in a Jan. 23 article by Penny Starr. Starr repeating described President Obama as "pro-abortion" or as supporting "pro-abortion policies" despite the inaccuracy of that term.

Similarly, Starr fails to describe abortion opponents as "anti-abortion"; rather, she uses the preferred right-wing term "pro-life." 

Starr also fails to mention Obama's statement expressing his support for Roe v. Wade, in which he also expressed his support for efforts to "prevent unintended pregnancies, reduce the need for abortion, and support women and families in the choices they make." Thus, we don't get to hear how wanting to "reduce the need for abortion" is somehow a "pro-abortion stance."
