Obama: "Abortions have not gone down"

Amanda Carprenter at Townhall.com:

I received an email this morning to tell me we missed Obama’s biggest Saddleback gaffe.

Remember when Obama was talking about abortion and said, “Although we’ve had a president who is opposed to abortions over the last eight years, abortions have not gone down”?

My emailer passes on this 2008 article from U.S. News and World Report showing abortions have decreased dramatically under George Bush’s tenure. The title of it is “U.S. Abortion Rate Falls to Lowest Level in Decades.”

“So yes, Obama is either stunningly uninformed on one of American politics’ most volatile issues, or he outright lied to a pastor on national television (not to mention the American people) as he gave lip service to a known left wing myth,” my friend writes.
