I write in reference to an article of May 20th on Heartbeat pf Lima.

This article reads like The Lima News is covering a local coffee shop moving to a new location and expanding its menu. At no point is there any recognition that facilities like Heartbeat are highly controversial. They have in the past tended to misrepresent themselves in a way that leads pregnant girls and women to believe they offer abortion services. When the women get inside, the staff proceeds to shame and frighten them into carrying their pregnancies to term, often with serious health risks to the women.

(And before anyone objects, medical experts agree that carrying a pregnancy to term is 10 times more risky for the woman than any standard abortion procedure performed by a competent doctor.)

I would think, given what has been happening lately — i.e., the U.S. Supreme Court about to overturn Roe vs Wade — The Lima News would be a bit more critical in its coverage of facilities like Heartbeat, at least acknowledging that they are controversial.
