NARAL aborts anti-Roberts ad campaign.
According to Fox News, NARAL has withdrawn its attack ads against John Roberts. NARAL president Nancy Keenan said, "Unfortunately, the debate over that advertisement has become a distraction from the serious discussion we hoped to have with the American public." She also said that she was upset that people had "misconstrued" the ads.
Frankly, Ms. Keenan, the problem was not that people misinterpreted your ads. The problem was that the ad itself was purposefully misleading. The ad totally misrepresented the facts in the case of Bray v. Alexandria Womens Health Clinic. Instead of mentioning anything about the Ku Klux Klan Act being used to arrest pro-lifers (which was the entire point of Bray), NARAL tried to hoodwink the public into beleiving that John Roberts was arguing in favor of a clinic bombing which did not take place until five years after the case!
It was the facts that were "misconstrued", not the ads.
