The Party of Death: The Democrats, the Media, the Courts, and the Disregard
for Human Life
by Ramesh Ponnuru
Regnery Publishing, 2006
(320 pages, $27.95, hardcover)
reviewed by Jennifer Roback Morse
The mainstream media do not look very good in Ramesh Ponnuru’s account: They look more like cooperative lapdogs for the abortion lobby than objective reporters of truth. The overwhelming theme of The Party of Death, written by a senior editor of National Review, is that sustaining the Party of Death has required a massive amount of denial and outright fraud about abortion and its impact on society.
