Pro-life groups claim PBS attempted to censor President's speech on abortion
Jan 28 2023 Share

The Life Network Foundation, Doctors for Life and I See Life organisations, coming together as the coalition ‘Inti Tista’ Ssalvani’ have written a formal letter to the Public Broadcasting Services (PBS) and Broadcasting Authority claiming censorship of the President of Malta George Vella’s speech regarding abortion.

In a media communication, the coalition claimed that the PBS newsroom “decided to report everything stated by the President during [his speech on International Holocaust Remembrance Day] except the portion where he talks about abortion.

“Millions of unborn babies are being killed before being given the chance to see the light of day”, President Vella stated during his speech. The coalition went on to argue that this strong statement by the President merits attention and “the fact that PBS decided not to report this, particularly in the present circumstances is an attempt of censorship on the President”.

The communication also stated that this was not the first time the PBS newsroom decided to be selective and censor its reporting, going on to argue that the same newsroom chose to censor everything stated by the doctors during Andrea Prudente’s case in Malta.

“All this is in violation of the clear provision of the Constitution of Malta as well as the provisions in the Broadcasting law which extend this obligation directly to the public broadcaster and which impose on it the obligation to ensure that the services of its news are objective and comprehensive”, the statement read.

What do you make of this?

Born on March 4th 1907, Morera has lived through two world wars, a civil war and two global pandemics, so her piece of advice may be as credible as ever.

Nowadays, the Guinness World Record holding woman even uses Twitter, with some help from her daughter.

“I need peace and tranquility”, the record-holder stated in a recent Twitter statement posted in late January.

“I am surprised and pleased by the expectation that the feat of being the oldest living person in the world has generated. Many thanks to everyone for the most interest, face that I have no merit. These days have been very tight and we have decided, with the Residence Management, that there will be no more interviews.”
