Latest Anti-Obama Robocall Hits Him On Partial Birth Abortion

According to Shaun Dakin of the non-partisan Citizens for Civil Discourse, individuals in three states have reported receiving a new robocall from the National Pro-Life Alliance attacking Barack Obama on the issue of partial birth abortion.

Citizens in Oregon, North Carolina and Florida have reported receiving the call, which alleges that Barack Obama will "legalize" the practice if elected president. The call then encourages recipients to vote for John McCain.

Obama has criticized the Supreme Court's 2007 partial-birth ruling in the case of Gonzales v. Carhart, calling it "a concerted effort to steadily roll back" access to abortion. However, Obama also made clear on Fox News in April that he "strongly believe[s] that the state can properly restrict late-term abortions. I have said so repeatedly. All I've said is we should have a provision to protect the health of the mother, and many of the bills that came before me didn't have that."

In Florida, the person who reported receiving the Pro-Life Association's robocall said it was a "waste of their time and money," since the household had already voted early.

The narrator is identified as "Mary King." The National Pro-Life Association is based in Virginia and run by Martin Fox, according to the group's website.

As always, if you receive a call (or can record one), drop us a note in our tip box.
