Obamacare and federal funding for abortion

I just heard the following audio clip on the Hugh Hewitt show:
There are some folks out there who are frankly bearing false witness. But I want everyone to know what health insurance reform is all about. You've heard that this is all going to mean government-funding of abortion. Not true. This is all — these are all fabrications that have been put out there in order to discourage people from meeting what I consider to be a core ethical and moral obligation (Barack Obama).
Please read it again. This idea that Obamacare will provide for federally funded abortions is absolutely "not true." Those who say such things are spreading "fabrications". They are "bearing false witness." They are lying. We have President Obama's solemn word on that.

But according to the American Spectator:
A new report by the Congressional Research Service reveals that the national health care law allows for federally-funded abortions, despite Democrats' claims to the contrary.
I'm really at a loss to understand why anyone believes anything this President says anymore.
