NARAL caught in another lie...


NARAL Falsely Accuses Supreme Court Nominee Roberts
An abortion-rights group is running an attack ad accusing Supreme Court nominee John Roberts of filing legal papers "supporting... a convicted clinic bomber" and of having an ideology that "leads him to excuse violence against other Americans" It shows images of a bombed clinic in Birmingham, Alabama.

The ad is false.

And the ad misleads when it says Roberts supported a clinic bomber. It is true that Roberts sided with the bomber and many other defendants in a civil case, but the case didn't deal with bombing at all. Roberts argued that abortion clinics who brought the suit had no right use an 1871 federal anti-discrimination statute against anti-abortion protesters who tried to blockade clinics. Eventually a 6-3 majority of the Supreme Court agreed, too. Roberts argued that blockades were already illegal under state law.
This isn't surprising, since according to NARAL co-founder, Dr. Bernard Nathanson, NARAL was itself founded on a lie and has used lies to successfully exploit women and children since even before RoeVWade.

I'm back...

Hey everyone... I returned to Santa Barbara this evening after a very full trip to the San Diego area as well as Houston, TX (by way of planes, trains, and automobiles). All in all, the trip was very smooth and very productive, thanks be to God. Got to spend some time with my fiancée, Christina, and her family, as well as with Bill in Houston, and it was awesome being able to attend mass again at Our Lady of Walsingham, which is a Roman Catholic parish of the Anglican Use. Many thanks to Bill for the great suggestions (and for giving up so much of his time!) ;)
