NARAL's delusive new ad calls on the right-to-life movement to work with the abortion movement in helping "more women prevent unintended pregnancy."
We are happy to see NARAL give lip service to an objective the life movement has had since its inception. Unfortunately NARAL's actual agenda does not merit the same praise.
NARAL offers up the same tired and failed solution it has offered in the past - increase money and access to condoms and the morning-after pill by supporting Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid's (D-NV) legislation titled the "Prevention First Act." The bill specifically states that its goal is increased condom distribution coupled with more than doubling taxpayers' monies to deceptively titled "family planning."
The bill also bars any money going to organizations that promote abstinence only programs. In addition, the bill forces hospitals that receive federal funds to provide the morning-after pill on demand.
This is obviously no compromise. FRC has supported many compromise bills, such as the Unborn Victims of Violence Act and the current Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act - bills that NARAL and its ilk have fought against tooth and nail.
NARAL's goals are clear - they want to feed more at the taxpayer trough while pushing failed programs.
