A pro-choice blogger has posted NARAL's email to supporters which attempts to refute FactCheck.org's analysis of their commercial on Judge John Roberts.
I think this is my favorite part:
Factcheck.org Is Profoundly Misguided To State That Operation Rescue's Behavior Is Akin to the Civil Rights Movement: Mr. Barge states that Operation Rescue's actions "in some ways mirrored the non-violent tactics used earlier by civil-rights activists." This restatement of anti-choice extremists' talking points is clearly untrue. As Justice Stevens wrote in Bray, "the demonstrations in the 1960's were motivated by a desire to extend the equal protection of the laws to all classes – not to impose burdens on any disadvantaged class... The suggestion that there is an analogy between their struggle to achieve equality and these petitioners' concerted efforts to deny women equal access to a constitutionally protected privilege may have rhetorical appeal, but it is insupportable on the record before us...(10)" Justice Stevens also noted that Bray "presents a striking contemporary example of the kind of zealous, politically motivated, lawless conduct that led to the enactment of the Ku Klux Act in 1871 and gave it its name(11)." Similarly, Justice O'Connor likened Operation Rescue's behavior to the Ku Klux Klan, noting that "[l]ike the Klan conspiracies Congress tried to reach in enacting §1985(3), ‘[p]etitioners intended to hinder a particular group in the exercise of their legal rights because of their membership in a specific class(12).'"
In other words - FactCheck.org is clearly wrong because Justice Stevens and Justice O'Connor say so.
I also like this:
There was no attempt by NARAL Pro-Choice America to misstate the timeline of events or to infer that Ms. Lyons' injuries occurred as the result of the actions at issue in the Bray case.
Then why on earth is Ms. Lyons in the commercial??? Why is a victim of an abortion clinic bombing prominently featured in a commercial discussing a case has nothing to do with that clinic bombing??? If Lyons injuries have nothing to do with Bray, then why show her injures and have her saying things like, " I'm determined to stop this violence so I'm speaking out."
Keep digging NARAL.
