They never do much with the annual March for Life each January on the Mall of Washington on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

This is definitely newsworthy. But the major news media ignored it.

A coalition of African-American pastors and other
pro-lifers marched on the headquarters of both major American political
parties in Washington on Thursday to demand that the party committees
and party candidates for office refuse the $10 million that Planned
Parenthood has said it will spend to influence the 2008 elections.

Decrying what they called its “philosophy of prenatal murder in the
black community,” the marchers also demanded that Planned Parenthood be
stripped of its $350 million in taxpayer funding it receives each year.

The marchers visited the headquarters of both the Democratic
National Committee and the Republican National Committee. They were led
by Day Gardner of the National Black Pro-Life Union and Dr. Alveda
King, who is a niece of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I saw Dr. King on Fox News this morning talking about this issue as
the natural extension of the civil rights movement. It was a compelling
interview. The other media ignoring a story and an issue so
fundamentally important to the human person as this during an election
is….willfully ignorant.
