A few weeks ago, we wrote about a story on Politico.com that reported the Obama campaign was seeking a rape victim for a campaign ad that would attack Sarah Palin’s stance on abortion.

Abortion & The “Health” Of The Mother

ProChoice.com Is Not What You Think It Is

You know, no matter where you stand on the abortion debate, toying with women’s lives through false advertising is pretty effed up.
