New TV ad calls out Roberts on ties to violent anti-choice groups
NARAL Pro-Choice America launched a national television ad campaign today that draws attention to John Roberts’ less than stellar associates. You know, the ones that bomb clinics.
Featured in the ad is Emily Lyons, the former director of nursing at the New Woman All Women Healthcare Clinic in Birmingham, Alabama. Lyons survived anti-choice violence when a bomb exploded outside the clinic, resulting in the death of a police officer. Lyons underwent more than 20 surgeries for the injuries she sustained, and has since been a tireless advocate for reproductive rights and health.
Check out the ad here.

I just read the review of your anti-Roberts ad on factcheck.org. Here is the URL.
If this article is accurate (I have checked many of their articles before and found them to be accurate, thus I believe them), then I am VERY disappointed in your tactics. It is harder than ever in this time of internet access for the "facts" in an ad such as this to remain researched and unchallenged. I consider it to both be in poor taste and a tactical blunder to use such misleading and false ads. Once your credibility is ruined - it is with me - it can be next to impossible to repair it.
