CNN’s latest iReport topic is abortion. They ask “How do you feel now?” “How did it change your life?” but how do we know that this won’t be just a mainstream outlet to spew abortion myths as absolute truth?
What is CNN’s motive? To get at truth? To start a fiery debate that will lead to a spike in hits and viewership? This is easy, low-hanging fruit “reporting”.
What you need to be focusing on is the cycle of poverty among women, the lack of access to reproductive healthcare, the attack across the country on women’s right to a legal abortion? In the southern states especially (CNN does know Mississippi’s last abortion clinic is on the chopping block thanks to a legion anti-abortion legislators headed by Governor Bryant?).
If CNN is interested in having a conversation about abortion – how about you make it the right one?
Let’s get the views up on this so more people (and hopefully CNN!) will see. This iReport topic is lazy journalism. Maybe a sort of linkbait. View the whole post so we get the view count up and get more people to see what a *real* conversation is worth.

If men can do it, why can’t a woman do it? I really feel one of my main reasons for being on this earth is to level out the playing field just a little bit."
