A new video released by the Population Research Institute makes the case for voters on how the ObamaCare health care reform legislation allowed abortion funding.

The video, entitled “ObamaCare: The Facts On Abortion,” is available to watch on YouTube and PRI says it relies heavily on legal research done by the National Right to Life Committee.

The research “details the many ways that ObamaCare will lead to expanded abortion coverage across the nation.”

“Since NRLC’s research is some of the most comprehensive and reliable in the country, the accuracy and detail of PRI’s video would have been impossible without it. We believe that, at the time of this writing, we are the first group to use this information specifically to fuel a YouTube video on this most important of issues,” the group said in a statement today.

PRI uses YouTube’s annotation system to insert a series of digital “footnotes” into the video to provide documentation for the abortion-funding assertions.

The contention that ObamaCare allows abortion funding is backed up by credible links, which are clickable and embedded right in the video itself.

“With this video, we’re really trying to transmit information about life issues in a way that isn’t really being done a lot yet,” says Colin Mason, PRI’s Director of Media Production and one of the video’s creators. [related]

“Our video is fully linked into our social networking sites, and all of its facts are backed up right in the video itself. We hope that people will use this video (and others like it) as a tool to help them explain these issues to others, using solid evidence and sound rhetoric,’ he said.

The video has already received endorsements from other pro-life advocates — with Deal Hudson of InsideCatholic calling it “required viewing for every pro-lifer.”

Bryan Kemper of Stand True adds, “This is an amazing video explaining how ObamaCare does pay for abortion, you have to see this video.”
