In a statement to POLITICO, NOW President Terry O’Neill said that Palin is “missing our point.”
“The goal of the Focus on the Family ad is not to empower women. It’s to create a climate in which Roe v. Wade can be overturned,” O’Neill said. “There are always going to be women who need abortions. In this country, one in three women will have an abortion.”
If one-in-three is your justification for rabidly attacking the public airing of any alternative opinion, then it kind of undermines that whole “Safe, Rare, and Legal” canard, doesn’ t it? And while we’re on the subject, why was there ever lip service paid to the goal of making abortion “rare” if there is nothing wrong with it and it should be a RIGHT anyway?
Anybody? Anybody? Anybody? Bueller?
