The Truth from Becky

I support civil union but not gay marriage. There is only one definition for marriage.

Technology will soon make it possible to produce babies outside of the womb. Long live Brave New World!
We need to liberate both men and women from the tyranny of the other.

Really Ed?

I genuinely respect people who are against abortion but to compare the media's (lack of?) coverage of people protesting a 30 year old law to a potentially historic ruling by the Supreme Court, is kind of silly.

BTW, did Fox and the Post have extensive coverage of this so-called "500,000" march in January? Didn't think so.

Glad to hear some agreement, and they interview their chilrdren - what do you expect them to say? I hope NYC is getting paid by the administration.

BRAVO, ED. They ignore anything they must be expected to dislike..

I support gay marriage (even if I'm sick of hearing about it...enough already, let's get it over with).
The real issue for me is, once again, the DUPLICITY of WNYC, NPR and the rest of the agenda-driven media to ignore one side and to hype/cheerlead/steer the discussion for their side. (And we all know THEIR side.) This mainstream media dishonesty put Barry Obama back in office and is now the go-to tool of the leftist agenda. (Taxes, "unfairness", affirmative action, favorable (to Dems) immigration, energy, global warming, etc.) The American people are being manipulated and deceived on a regular basis now.

It's kind of funny ... 500,000 people march in Washington in the pro-life march in January ... the media doesn't mention it. Now, on the edge of a second Roe v. Wade decision, there are 50 seats for the public in the Supreme Court ... and it sounds like there are thousands standing outside holding places to get inside.
