(CNN) - Claims that health care reform would use taxpayer dollars to fund abortions just aren't true, according to a new ad from a liberal Catholic organization.
The 30-second ad from Catholics United launches Thursday and targets pro-life legislators who are undecided on the Senate bill with this message:
"Analysts agree the reform bill prohibits federal funding for abortion. It's endorsed by pro-life advocates, like the Catholic Health Association…And it defends human life at all stages by covering 30 million uninsured…"
The Catholic group's six-figure ad buy will air in the districts of Democratic Reps. Christopher Carney and Kathy Dahlkemper of Pennsylvania, Joe Donnelly and Brad Ellsworth of Indiana, Steve Dreihaus of Ohio, Daniel Lipinski of Illinois, Tom Perriello of Virginia and Bart Stupak of Michigan.
"It is our sincere hope that pro-life Americans will see through the false charges and lend their support to this important legislation," said Chris Korzen, executive director of Catholics United. "We are just days away from making history."
