Here's today's Washington Watch Daily commentary from FRC Radio:
When it comes to advertising on the D.C. metro, pro-lifers are in for a bumpy ride. This month, the Conference of Catholic Bishops bought ad space on the subway to educate people about abortion. The posters tell riders that the human heart starts beating at 22 daysbut explains that Roe v. Wade says a doctor can stop it for the next 244. Now a group thats funded by George Soros, CREW, is doing its best to derail the campaign. Theyve asked the Transit Authority to investigate, saying the ads are false and misleading. But if its truth in advertising they want, why not target Planned Parenthood or the Human Rights Campaign? Those groups have used metro space for years to promote something that doesnt even exist outside of marriagesafe sex. As the Supreme Court considers the partial-birth abortion case, the Catholic Bishops are trying to be an engine for change. And as far as Im concerned, theyre on the right track.
