Video: The Mainstream Media’s Willful Blindness to Life and Family Issues

An Interview with John-Henry Westen of LifeSiteNews

Is the media's coverage of abortion as biased and ill informed as pro-lifers say it is? What can ordinary pro-life Catholics do to build a culture of life? John-Henry Westen knows a thing or two about these questions. Westen is the co-founder and editor-in-chief of, a daily news website that covers life and family issues in North America and around the world. At the Conservative Political Action Conference in February 2015, Aleteia's Katherine Ruddy caught up with Westen to discuss his take on the pro-life cause.
