Leading pro-life advocates marched in downtown Washington, D.C. to the doorstep of ABC News’ Washington bureau to accuse the network and other mainstream media outlets of bias and censorship on abortion.

Fifty six days after the grisly trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell began, ABC broke its self-imposed blackout and finally offered coverage.

Lila Rose, the head of Live Action, which coordinated the event, said “Enough is enough. It’s time to report the news. It’s time to stop censoring the news.”

She was joined by pro-life leaders like Jill Stanek, Ryan Bomberger and Charmaine Yoest of Americans United for Life.

Yoest said, “The grisly trial of now-convicted murderer Dr. Kermit Gosnell brought national attention to the deplorable conditions in America’s ‘legal’ abortion industry. Gosnell’s trial showed that abortion carries inherent risks to women, whether it is performed at a clinic like his, or not. But it was only after being embarrassed by their negligent silence, that most media outlets finally acknowledged that a ‘house of horrors’ even existed.”

“When will abortion come with a warning label? Numerous, well-documented studies in peer-reviewed medical journals demonstrate that abortion poses significant medical risks for women. At every turn, the abortion industry fights to remain unregulated, unmonitored and secretive, lobbying to keep women ignorant about what will happen to their own bodies and to keep responsible adults away from vulnerable girls being pressured to buy an abortion,” she added.
