The founder and editor of the highly-popular Drudge Report surprised pro-life advocates on twitter this morning with a tweet condemning abortion an highlighting how thousands of babies are killed on a daily basis.





“There will be over 3,500 killed in USA today from abortion. No flags lowered, no presidents crying. No media hyperventilating. Normal day,” Mat Drudge said on his personal twitter account. The account is not as large as the one of the Drudge Report itself but is still followed by more than 160,000 people.

The tweet gives more of an insight into Drudge’s thinking. While the Drudge Report often links to articles on abortion and typically from the pro-life vantage point, there have been few clues as to Matt Drudge’s own personal views on abortion. he has typically been seen as somewhat of a libertarian who may generally oppose abortion or at least favor abortion limits but who mostly prefers to highlight the sensational aspects of the abortion debate.



Drudge got support from the conservative web site Twitchy for his tweet.

“In a rare tweet from his personal Twitter account, Matt Drudge makes a sobering and heartbreaking point. Where are the tears and the breathless media cries over the 3,500 unborn who will be killed by abortion today?” it said.
