Because It's New

Breitbart has a headline saying that America is more interested in the Johnny Depp defamation trial than in the topic of Abortion.

Probably because we haven't been talking about Johnny Depp and Amber Heard for decades and being assaulted non-stop by their most strident and tiresome supporters the entire time.

Does this mean the topic of abortion is without merit?

No.

It means that people are sick of hearing about it and welcome the change of topic.

Honestly, we know what any given outlet is going to say about abortion and we know if we agree or not already, so there's really no need to bother watching or reading about it at those outlets.

It would take an extraordinary argument to change anyone's mind about this too.

I'm not saying the argument doesn't exist, I'm just saying that nobody's made it yet.  You can tell because there's still a debate.

  1. My own impression is that if both sides could get rid of their screaming all-or-nothing fanatics, we could hammer out a compromise position that almost everybody could live with.
