The Christian Defense Coalition has launched a campaign featuring this ad exposing one of Barack Obama’s many far left abortion positions:

Quoting a CBS News story on this today…

Under the present version of the Hyde amendment, which was introduced in 1976 to limit federal funding of abortion, Medicaid now covers abortions only in cases of rape, incest, and life endangerment, according to the National Abortion Federation.
As a state senator in Illinois, Obama voted against a bill similar to the Hyde amendment that prohibited the use of state funding to pay for abortions.

That last sentence was inaccurate. Had to be purposeful. All reporter Brian Montopoli had to do was place a period after “Hyde Amendment,” but no, he went on to incorrectly describe the bill Obama opposed as being a blanket mandate against taxpayer funded abortions in IL, which it was not – to make it appear as if Obama voted reasonably? No, the bill allowed taxpayer funding of abortions for sexual assault and life of the mother. The bill language is here.
Nevertheless, a January 2008 FRC commissioned poll indicated 56% would be “less likely” to vote for a presidential candidate supporting taxpayer funded abortions compared to 31% “more likely.”
This is a good anti-Obama talking point.
