A reporter for Forbes Magazine has blocked on Twitter after this news outlet showed her the truth about the Planned Parenthood abortion business.

As LifeNews reported yesterday, Forbes reporter Clare O’Connor was one of a handful of reporters to tweet to pro-life Congresswoman Diane Black in response to her announcement that she has filed a bill to defund the Planned Parenthood abortion business. O’Connor made the unfounded claim that defunding would result in women dying.

“Women are going to die because of legislation like this. If you’re in a position to donate to PP, do so now,” she claimed.

In response to her claims — in two different tweets to O’Connor, LifeNews presented her with previous news articles about women who died at Planned Parenthood abortion clinics after botched abortions.

Apparently, as a result of learning the truth about the nation’s largest abortion company, O’Connor blocked LifeNews on Twitter.


This news Outlet emailed O’Connor to ask why she blocked LifeNews as a result of the tweets presenting her the truth about Planned Parenthood. As of press time she has yet to respond.

O’Connor’s actions present significant concerns about her ability to be an impartial reporter for Forbes. She is already writing on President-Elect Donald Trump and promoting Planned Parenthood in her columns — making it appear she’s more of a PR flack for the abortion company as opposed to an impartial journalist. She was an intern for CNN’s Anderson Cooper, who has shown his own pro-abortion bias.

Keep up with the latest pro-life news and information on Twitter.

Also, does Forbes magazine hold a similar position that defunding Planned Parenthood will result in women dying or does that unfounded position merely represent O’Connor’s views?And if those are only O’Connor’s personal views, do the editors at Forbes know you’re taking such a pro-abortion position on a sensitive and high-profile political issue?
