Pro-Life Group Launches Pro-Obama Site

Ad Feedback

A Christian group supporting Democrat Barack Obama for president has launched a new Web site called, "Pro-life Obama."

Obama supports Roe v. Wade and says he is pro-choice. But the "Matthew 25 Network" says Obama would reduce more abortions than McCain.

They point to Obama's promises to provide families with health insurance and affordable daycare.

"Senator Barack Obama will fight to make sure that every woman in America has the support she needs when facing an unplanned pregnancy," the Web site states. "Senator Obama's grass-roots, faith-based approach of support for women and families will help them when they most need it, preventing abortions by supporting women and families to choose life.

The "Matthew 25 Network" is a political action committee not affiliated with the Obama campaign.

The group's name comes from the Bible verse Matthew 25:40 that says, "Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me."

CBN News' David Brody says the Democratic Party has been making this pro-life case for a long time now, not just with Obama, but with Democrats who want to see abortion reduced in this country.

But Brody believes the Web site will anger many conservative Evangelicals.

"Calling Obama 'pro-life' won't go down well with conservative Evangelicals. Additionally, it will be really interesting to see the fallout and reaction from this, especially from the McCain campaign," Brody said.
