Michelle Malkin writes of Ashley Judd lending her "softer, gentler and more glamorous" face on the pro-abort movement. Malkin contrasts Ashley nicely with her mother, Naomi:

One wonders what Ashley's mom, beloved country singer Naomi Judd, must have thought of her daughter traipsing around with abortion rights militants. Naomi has spoken eloquently for years about how she firmly rejected abortion as an unwed teen and repeatedly witnessed the miracle of life as a labor and delivery nurse. "I've seen ultrasounds . . . you know that those babies are real," she told TV talk show host Sally Jesse Raphael in 1998.

A few years later, Naomi faced off against Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., on ABC's Politically Incorrect and argued for an eminently reasonable 24-hour waiting period before abortions. Drawing on her nursing experience, Naomi advocated full disclosure of the risks and consequences of abortion — including the use of ultrasound to give women the "whole picture." Sen. Mikulski growled that it was an "insult" to think that women didn't know what they were doing. Naomi responded that famous abortionist Bernard Nathanson, co-founder of the National Abortion Rights Action League, only disavowed his profession after witnessing abortion procedures filmed through ultrasound technology.

"Oh, my God in heaven, this is a living human being in its mother's womb," Naomi quoted Nathanson confessing. "(H)e was devastated at what he had done."
