A leading pro-life organization has released a new web ad asking Barack Obama to apologize for saying it lied about his abortion votes. Obama accused National Right to Life of lying when it released documents verifying he voted against medical care for newborns who survive abortions.
The dustup surrounds the votes Obama cast against bills in the Illinois legislature to make sure infants aren't left to die after they survive a failed abortion.
Obama voted against the bills, he says, because they would have violated Roe v. Wade, yet documents the National Right to Life Committee released weeks ago showed Obama opposed the measure even after supporting a successful amendment to limit its effect on Roe.
Those documents were supported by FactCheck, a nonpartisan research group at the University of Pennsylvania, yet Obama still hasn't apologized for calling NRLC officials liars.
The pro-life group told LifeNews.com on Friday that it has released a new Internet ad asking him to do so.
"In August, National Right to Life released documents proving that, in 2003, Barack Obama was responsible for killing a bill to provide care and protection for babies who are born alive after abortions and that he later misrepresented the bill's content," a female narrator says.
The ad cites the Obama remark, when the candidate said about NRLC, "I hate to say that people are lying -- but here's a situation where folks are lying."
It cites the FactCheck analysis saying, "Obama's claim is wrong. The documents ... support the group's claims that Obama is misrepresenting the contents of [Senate Bill] 1082."
The NRLC PAC ad goes on to say, "Was Obama afraid that the public would learn about his extreme position -- that he opposed merely defining every baby born alive after an abortion as deserving of protection?"
"Will Obama now apologize for calling us liars when we were the ones telling the truth?"
The message concludes: "Barack Obama, a candidate whose word you can't believe in."
The ad is currnelty online at YouTube but there is a chance it could be used in a television commercial or a radio spot.
He’s a disgrace to all other Kenyans.
Uh oh, taking on The Obama will get you in trouble with the law.
I just clicked on the video at the link, and it said, “We’re sorry, this video no longer available.”
Did Obamassiah call National Right to Life liars in Missouri? If so, or if it was heard in MO, call the cops and have him arrested for lying.
The cops should be called on Hussein for repeating the BIGGEST lie of them all- the fact that he sat in Rev. Wright’s chruch for 20 years, took his tapes to school with him and listened to them in his spare time, used him as a political and “spiritual” advisor,had him perform his marraige ceremony and baptize his children, but had NO idea that he was a white hating, America hating scumbag.
Obama responded:”My words were taken out of context!”
I expected that as soon as I saw the video.
Good luck - He’ll more likely prosecute you with his “Truth Squad!
Just think of all the new ads for the McCain campaign.
Kissinger has already come out and said Obama lied in the debates about being in agreement with him.
Obama also lied about the preconditions with Iran. Unless that’s not the same Obama official web site he used to know, which clearly states the opposite.
Obama is a dishonest and very dangerous man.
Get it on the air now! This is an undeniably clear case of Obama not only telling a bald face lie, but he 1) went overboard pretending to be very offended that someone would actually suggest that he favored allowing live babies die; 2) has lied about it for at least 4 years running; 3) favored allowing live babies die as they struggled for life.
Play it every day 20 times a day on every station in the nation.
Obama calls anyone who gives honest criticism of him, a Liar, he even called McCain a liar during debate.. Obama .. is a naive MORON.
It's not unbelievable at all. You may not defame, correct, or insult the Lord Obama. You may not say anything about him that he does not wish said. Get used to it. This is America on Obama.
Don’t know if you saw this or not, it’s from Saturday, but I thought those on your ping list might wish to see this. :)
Hey Barry, what part of Kiss My A$$ don’t you understand?
Does anyone know what happened to the ad at YouTube? It’s saying that it was “removed by user”.
