Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — Abortion advocates are making President Bush’s pro-life nominees to federal courts an election issue in the campaign for president. On Wednesday, twenty-four organizations, including several pro-abortion groups, launched a new ad that attacks Bush.
The television and Internet advertising campaign will "spotlight the extremist views and records of the [Bush] administration’s judicial nominees," the groups say.
The spot also asks viewers to contact members of the Senate and urge senators to vote against Bush’s picks for federal courts.
"This administration has shown that it will go to any length, violate any rule, and upset any precedent to pack the courts with anti-choice extremis," says Elizabeth Cavendish, interim president of NARAL.
"We must not allow these dangerous ideologues to make rulings over women’s reproductive rights and fundamental freedoms for a generation to come," Cavendish added.
With more and more people becoming pro-life I think this AD campaign is a good thing. Illustrating that President Bush is mostly pro-life to try to anger those who want to keep abortion on demand will probably only end up preaching to the unholy choir of abortion supporters. Those who are pro-life or are becoming more so will just have one more reason to compare Bush and Kerry. NARAL is not making ads attacking Kerry for his "Life begins at conception" statement. They know that the words are empty and their advocacy is not threatened in any way.
Some months back Sen. Kerry criticized President Bush using the verse from the book of James about faith and deeds. In the last week he he has given two speeches using this phrase.
"When we look at what is happening in America today we must ask ourselves, ‘Where are the deeds?’ " Mr. Kerry said to rousing applause. "The Bible teaches us: ‘It is not enough, my brother, to say you have faith when there are not deeds. Faith without deeds is dead.’ "
While I readily agree that I am a sinner who struggles to do what is right I would truly like to ask "my brother" John Kerry that if he has faith in what the Catholic Church teaches where are his deeds?
