This bodes ill for NARAL Pro-Choice America and leaves them looking more and more like a fringe group. No doubt this is why their communications director, David Seldin, has resigned.
The Times editorial ends with the following paragraph:
â€œIn withdrawing the ad, Naral’s president, Nancy Keenan, said that the controversy sparked by the ad had â€˜become a distractionâ€™ from the group’s effort to educate the public. Lamentably, her statement stopped short of apologizing to Judge Roberts, and to Americans of all ideological stripes who are hoping for a confirmation process at once vigorous and informed. If Naral wants to regain credibility, it should start there.â€
