Planned Parenthood Photoshops “Justice Kavanaugh” onto NYT Story About 5-4 Vote to Overturn Roe v. Wade

November 5th, 2012

This advertisement is really impressive and detailed!

Taking a page from the Obama campaign playbook, Planned Parenthood Monday rolled out a last-ditch Facebook campaign aimed at scaring liberal voters to the polls highlighting what they imagine a future Supreme Court would look like under Mitt Romney.

The ad features a June 2014 New York Times front page trumpeting the overturning of Roe v. Wade and ominously warning that a Romney court nominee turned out to be the decicive vote.

The ad imagines “newcomer Justice Kavanaugh” as joining in an opinion “written by Chief Justice John G. Roberts” that “threw the status quo on abortion rights out the window.” Judge Brett Kavanaugh, currently on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, apparently is imagined to have replaced Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who does not appear in the line-up of votes in the ad.

The fine print under the majority bloc by CJ Roberts says:

Too long has a bunch of ninnies run this country and this court. Frankly, we are tired of it. We do not enjoy modernity, and the moral grayscale that came into popularity after the age of colonies and slaves ended. But we probably hav ea bunch of legal language to dress that up with here.

The text under the “dissenting joint opinion reads”:

The court regards its trained statutory interpretation as judicial modesty. It is not. It amounts instead to a vast judicial overreaching. It creates a debilitated government.”

Very creative!
