NOW calls to Latinos, uses "discrimination" to argue against Alito nomination

Olga Vives, long-time NOW activist, a former sales and marketing professional and originally from Cuba, was on C-Span along side other NOW executives calling on all Latinos to stand against the Alito nomination as part of a larger NOW campaign to defeat the Alito nomination. She used common concerns to Latino immigrants, saying that Alito was a threat to the fight for women's rights, discrimination, and my all time favorite--"reproductive rights." What an embarrassment!!

The NOW website is using biased, unsubstantiated scare tactics, calling Alito a "fanatical, anti-abortion judge."
Restrictions on legal abortion increasing.
Women refused access to birth control.
Access to justice denied.
They can call it "defending" women's rights, "fighting" discrimination, and paint it any other way, but its still the same thing--plain old extreme-left scare tactics. The real danger is NOW's ongoing discrimination and war against traditional American culture and conservative values in this country, and the extremes they are willing to go for the sake of their cause.

On the same story, the Associated Press is reporting on the ABA's top rating for Alito. This is the one Latino voters need to pay attention to--true, factual qualifications that represent a step forward for the nation's highest court.

"As a result of our investigation, the committee is of the unanimous opinion that Judge Samuel A. Alito, Jr. is well-qualified for appointment as associate justice of the United States Supreme Court," said Stephen L. Tober, chairman of the ABA panel.

The ABA rating--the highest--is the same that Alito received back in when President Bush's father, George H.W. Bush, nominated him to the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, pointed out how Democrats selectively value or dismiss their very own standards.

"Unfortunately, the hard left groups decided long before these ratings were announced that they would oppose his nomination," Cornyn said Wednesday. "And some Senate Democrats, including some who have previously described the ABA's evaluation as the gold standard, will now dismiss the rating as meaningless."
I'm calling on all voters, regardless of race or background, to use common sense, and discern between myth and facts. Alito is a well qualified, proven defender of justice and law, and a great candidate to our highest court. Call your Senators and ask them to support the Alito nomination.
