Here's a NARAL ad opposing Roberts for his amicus brief in support of abortion clinic bombers. This is a good ad, I think. In the accompanying article, Pres. of NARAL Nancy Keenan says:
“I want to be very clear that we are not suggesting Mr. Roberts condones or supports clinic violence. I’m sure he finds bombings and murder abhorrent. But still his ideological view of the law compelled him to go out of his way to argue on behalf of someone like Michael Bray, who had already been convicted of a string of bombings.”
Sounds like good politics to me.

Q. Is there something weird or inconsistent about attacking Roberts on abortion at the same time we snuggle up to him on gay rights?

A. No.
