According to The Hill, pro-abortion liberals are livid over the Stupak abortion amendment to the House health care bill which (for the moment) blocks abortion in the government health care plan:
More than 40 lawmakers vowed to oppose the final healthcare bill if the House language on abortion is not removed.
Reps. Diana DeGette (Colo.) and Louise Slaughter (N.Y.) led the group of Democrats in writing to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) threatening to withhold support for a final conference report if it strictly prohibits federal funding for abortion services.
“We will not vote for a conference report that contains language that restricts women’s right to choose any further than current law,” reads a draft of the letter.
DeGette and Slaughter, who is the chairwoman of the powerful Rules Committee, also wrote President Barack Obama requesting a meeting on the issue next week.
The socialists in congress wanted us to believe oh, they weren’t looking for this socialist health care plan to fund abortions. They wanted us to be lulled into inattention while they sneaked it through…and now that a last-minute compromise-amendment made it in, their true colors and lust for taxpayer-funded abortion are shining through.
People who value innocent human life had to fight very hard through repeated failures to get the fragile protections against abortion into this bill at all, and I strongly suspect the only reason it made it in was to gain the temporary support of some congressmen who hold some allegiance to innocent human life. Yet anyone with half a brain knows it will be ditched at some later point).
In fact, the bill hadn’t been passed more than a day when several news outlets began reporting quotes from liberals in congress that protection of innocent human life would almost certainly be stripped from the bill before it’s finalized.
Remember when President Obama and other liberals lied to us and said the government health care plan wouldn’t fund abortion (among all the other lies they told us)? You didn’t believe them then, did you?
If you did, you’re probably busy wiping egg off your face right now for being a complete dufus.
