NARAL Stands Behind Malicious Anti-Roberts Ad

Saturday, August 13, 2005

The slanderous pro-choice lobby is standing behind their recently pulled television spot that links Supreme Court nominee John Roberts to an abortion clinic bomber, according to its official blog.

The commercial NARAL still supports features a female narrator delivering this warning over dramatic piano chords: "Seven years ago, a bomb destroyed a women's 'health clinic' in Birmingham, Alabama. Supreme Court nominee John Roberts filed court briefs supporting violent fringe groups and a convicted clinic bomber."

Wow, Roberts actually filed briefs on behalf of a clinic bomber? Well, no. Not even close. Turns out the brief was written seven years before the clinic was bombed. In it, Roberts stated (and correctly so) that abortion protestors were not violating a specific Civil Rights law when they protested. Seven years later one of those protestors Roberts indirectly spoke for happened to bombed a clinic.

The audacious announcement then ends with this closer: "America can't afford a justice whose ideology leads him to excuse violence against other Americans."

Meanwhile others are saying "America can't afford a justice whose ideology leads him to excuse violence against unborn children."

But regardless of your stance on abortion the NARAL campaign is a total sham devoid of any credibility. As The Daily Show's John Stewart shrewdly points out in this clip, saying John Roberts supports abortion clinic bombers is like saying those who bought Michael Jackson's 1982 Thriller album support child molestation.
