Is Obama's outreach to evangelicals over?

Sen. Barack Obama has launched an ad slamming John McCain's opposition to abortion rights, Politico reports.

"Let me tell you: If Roe vs. Wade is overturned, the lives and health of women will be put at risk. That's why this election is so important," says the nurse-practitioner who narrates Obama's ad. "John McCain's out of touch with women today. McCain wants to take away our right to choose. That's what women need to understand. That's how high the stakes are."

"Goodbye Evangelical Outreach" Mark Hemingway writes at National Review.

Fred Thompson's prepared remarks tonight included: "We need a president who doesn't think that the protection of the unborn or a newly born baby is above his pay grade."

Obama's new ad is an interesting contrast to the events I attended last week where several Democrats placed an emphasis on reducing the number of unwanted pregnancies.
