JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is lumping President Barack Obama and Florida Gov. Charlie Crist together while criticizing their positions on abortion.

Palin said that Obama is the most pro-abortion president ever and that his health care plan will expand access to the procedure.

She also mocked Crist, who recently left the Republican Party, for still claiming to be pro-life after he vetoed a bill that would have required women to get ultrasounds before having an abortion.

She made her remarks at a fundraiser Thursday for a group that helps pregnant women get support.

Crist is running for the U.S. Senate as an independent. He faces Republican Marco Rubio and Democrat Kendrick Meek.
