Doug Johnson, Legislative Director of the National Right to Life Committee, has just issued this alert:
In an essay posted today on RHrealitycheck.org (a nexus for pro-abortion activist groups), Rachel Laser - a career pro-abortion activist who now works for the influential "messaging" group Third Way - attempts to resurrect the Ellsworth Amendment.
Even though there is hardly paragraph in Laser's piece that does not contain some substantial distortion, Laser's initiative is not to be taken lightly, partly because she and her group have close connections with White House staff....
Here is NRLC's take on the Ellsworth Amendment. And here is a detailed critique by the US Conference of Catholic Bishops. Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH), who impersonates a pro-life congressman, has also resurfaced predicting "compromise". Most likely, he has a fresh script from Planned Parenthood in his pocket. For more details, see the special NRLC webpage devoted to "Tim Ryan, Impersonator."
