Pay attention to the language in “news” reports from the MSM.  There is often a rhetorical battle being waged at the level of word choices.  Background on the Wisconsin story HERE.

From WaPo:

Planned Parenthood, ACLU sue Wisconsin over abortion law

Planned Parenthood Federation of America and the American Civil Liberties Union are suing Wisconsin to try to block a new law that would require abortion providers to have admitting privileges at local hospitals. [Aside... big business abortion wants to keep their profits high.]

The law, set to take effect Monday, was “rushed” through the legislative process last month, [That's not a journalist's bias. Noooo....] the groups said in a complaint filed Friday in federal court in Madison, Wis. The measure would force two of the state’s four abortion providers to shut down, according to the complaint. A fifth clinic is set to close for unrelated reasons, according to the groups.

[...]

The Wisconsin law would force clinics in Milwaukee and Appleton to close and cause Planned Parenthood to cut staff and services at another clinic in Milwaukee, the state’s most populous city. The changes would make the procedure unavailable after 19 weeks of pregnancy and leave much of the state without any abortion providers, according to the complaint.

[...]

See what they are doing?

So, aside from the news item… the ACLU and Planned Parenthood, just one pair of interchangeable horns available to The Hornéd One on a daily basis… we see how language is used to sway opinion about the new.

UPDATE:

If you want to know what is going on between the sheets in the Planned Parenthood/ACLU menage with Ol’Scratch, just listen to what the hired protesters are chanting at the Texas capitol last week when the abortion legislation was debated.  You can clearly hear at about 5:15 in the video onward, the chant “Hail, Satan!”

Remember the words of Archbishop Chaput:

We make a very serious mistake if we rely on media like the New York Times, Newsweek, CNN, or MSNBC for reliable news about religion. These news media simply don’t provide trustworthy information about religious faith—and sometimes they can’t provide it, either because of limited resources or because of their own editorial prejudices. These are secular operations focused on making a profit. They have very little sympathy for the Catholic faith, and quite a lot of aggressive skepticism toward any religious community that claims to preach and teach God’s truth.
