For many years, LifeNews.com has brought national attention to the fact that the NAACP takes a strongly pro-abortion position, has worked hand in hand with pro-abortion groups and have actively opposed pro-life legislation.
In February, the NAACP threatened to sue LifeNews.com and Ryan Bomberger, a LifeNews blogger , for a column that took the civil rights organization to task over its abortion position. The NAACP is upset about a column Bomberger wrote at LifeNews titled, “NAACP: National Association for the Abortion of Colored People,” which notes the organization’s 44th Annual Image Awards.
Following the piece, the NAACP sent Bomberger, the director of the Radiance Foundation, and LifeNews a threatening letter claiming infringement on its name and logo for including it in the opinion column. Eventually the NAACP dropped LifeNews from its attempt to silence Bomberger’s pro-life reporting.
In a departure from centuries of case law defending the right to free speech, U.S. District Court Judge Raymond Jackson issued a ridiculous order essentially denying Bombverger’s free speech and preventing him from writing, producing or saying anything criticizing the NAACP over its pro-abortion position.
Not content to stifle Bomberger’s free speech and even though the lawsuit is not final — Bomberger is appealing the decision to stand up for his free speech — the NAACP is now threatening LifeNews again.
