CNN Correspondent Joins Board of Trustees of Pro-Choice Organization (CNN's Dana Bash)
Newsbusters ^ | 6-15-11 | Matt Hadro

Posted on 06/15/2011 11:18:36 AM PDT by STARWISE

CNN's Dana Bash is a new member of the board of trustees for an organization that, as part of its official mission, advocates for "reproductive rights" on Capitol Hill and at the United Nations.

The organization, Jewish Women International (JWI), clarifies that its purpose is "empowering women and girls -- through economic literacy; community training; healthy relationship education; and the proliferation of women's leadership."

The organization's mission statement includes the following: "At the grassroots level at the United Nations and on Capitol Hill, our advocacy agenda is centered on violence prevention and reproductive rights." In today's abortion debate, "reproductive rights" is usually a liberal code-word for "pro-choice."

Bash, a CNN Capitol Hill correspondent, was born and raised Jewish. She was honored by JWI in 2010 as one of 10 Jewish "women to watch" for her work at CNN.

The group's official blog recently affirmed its pro-choice stance in slamming the "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortions Act." The blog stated that "It is JWI's long-held belief that women and their families have the right to make their own decisions about pregnancy and health care, and that these decisions must remain a private matter."

They also called the bill part of "insidious efforts to restrict reproductive freedom."

I wonder if John "grunts" when he and Dana are performing their "reproductive rights"...

Who are these people who imagine Reformed Judaism’s worst heresies should be imposed on other people?!

So that’s the origin of “Squeal Like A Pig” ~ and not at all that movie about the hillbillies with guns.

On May 25, 2008, King married fellow CNN reporter Dana Bash.[1] Before marrying Bash, King converted to Judaism, Bash's religion.

So, when I see the grunter, John King, and his wife, attempt to tells us what’s ‘news,’ I now see not just blatant partisans, but those to whom abortion is very acceptable. Poor souls ...

As that very prominent Jew, Jerry Seinfeld, observed, “It’s not like changing toothpastes”.

Oh my! Now people might suspect that CNN is not a paragon of objectivity and fairness in political reporting!
Oh my!

If they believe that, then there is no reason for taxpayer funding for abortion, now, is there.

More proof liberalism is a mental disease.

His wife that I believe is pregnant. Aren’t all women pro-choice? You can choose whether or not to have sex that can result in the pregnancy. After you made that choice, if pregnancy is the result, you are either pro-life or pro-death.
