Rep. Marsha Blackburn, one of the GOP's most outspoken critics of abortion, has been targeted by NARAL Pro-Choice America, a national advocate of reproductive rights and abortion services.

Blackburn, a Tennessee Republican seeking an eighth term in Congress this year, has made "a very conscientious effort somewhere along the line not only to push this agenda that's out of the mainstream, but to be the leader on it," NARAL spokesman James Owens told The Tennessean.

"We are holding her accountable and lifting her actions up so she can't hide them."

NARAL believes Blackburn, chair of a special House panel probing the practices of abortion providers, is using her group to "smear" Planned Parenthood and "unfairly target researchers, medical supply companies and others involved in fetal tissue research," The Tennessean says.

According to recent polls, Blackburn is expected to win in November.

In April, Blackburn, appearing on Newsmax TV, said that buying body parts from aborted fetuses is comparable to and as easy as buying something from a retail website.

She told J.D. Hayworth on "Newsmax Prime:"

"The morning of [a recent] hearing we went to one of the procurement businesses' website. You could put in the length of gestation that you wanted this unborn baby to be, you could put in if you wanted a liver or a heart or a lung or an arm or a scalp, and then the price was listed.''
