Hey ABC, your propaganda is the 'scandal'

"Scandal" TV showA media watchdog is calling out an ABC television show for its propaganda-like treatment of abortion, and a pro-life activist meanwhile is calling for action.

The culprit is ABC Television political drama "Scandal," which showed main character Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) aborting her baby while the Christmas hymn "Silent Night" plays in the background.

"The Left worships death," Katie Yoder wrote at Newsbusters after the Nov. 19 episode.

That's because Yoder, in her story, noted the predictable cheerleading from left-wing websites Huffington Post and Salon. 

Yoder called the episode a "plug for abortion" due to the abortion scene and a character's defense of Planned Parenthood.

The episode also drew the attention of pro-life activist Lila Rose, who also noted the pro-abortion propaganda sprinkled throughout the episode.

Rose says more than 23,000 people have signed a Live Action petition telling ABC Television and Disney to "stop promoting abortion."

She tells OneNewsNow the episode is a "promotion piece" for Planned Parenthood, which likely needed some left-wing propaganda from ABC after the release of undercover videos through much of the year.

And the episode predictably drew applause from the abortion giant, which praised "Scandal" for telling people that "our rights to reproductive health are under attack," The Federalist reported

Despite the obvous propaganda, Yoder tells OneNewsNow that "Scandal" didn't actually "show abortion for what it is." If it did, she says, "people would be horrified."

But if the "Scandal" character was horrified by her abortion, she didn't show it. She's sipping wine and smiling as the episode ends.
