Pro-abortion to the hilt NARAL hammers pro-life governors for being “obsessed” with abortion

Let me see if I get this straight.  NARAL—which never saw an abortion so late in pregnancy (or wanted for so frivolous a reason) that it would it oppose the abortion—“launched a six-figure mail campaign on Monday targeting three Republican governors for their anti-abortion records,” the Huffington Post’s Laura Bassett reported.

Promoting the deaths of millions of unborn babies is what NARAL (technically NARAL Pro-Choice America) does for a living. So, from their vantage point, naturally they want to defeat pro-life Govs. Scott Walker (R-Wis.), Rick Scott (R-Fla.) and Sam Brownback (R-Kan.)

But a pro-abortion organization that is obsessed with multiplying the number of abortion accusing the pro-life governors of being “obsessed” with reducing the number abortion seems a bit hard to swallow, wouldn’t you say?

By Bassett’s description, the ads are that blend of subtlety and restraint that is the hallmark of the pro-abortion attack ad machine:

“NARAL’s materials describe the governors’ actions limiting reproductive rights, accompanied by photos of the governors’ heads with the word ‘abortion’ splashed across their brains.”

Two quick conclusions. First, pro-life governors are quite capable of both signing protective legislation and doing what NARAL insists they are not: giving sufficient “attention to the economic conditions in all three of these states.” Which, of course, anyone over the age of 10 can figure out.

Second, their pro-abortion Democratic opponents are supported by the usual suspects—such as EMILY’s List, which supports only female Democrats who signed the absolute-abortion-on-demand pledge. That’s fine, too.

What is not fine, or even marginally accurate, is for Bassett to describe them as “more moderate on the issue.”

More proof, as if any is needed, that pro-abortionists and their legion of media supporters do not place a premium on accurate or even a passing faithfulness to the truth.
