Stay Strong, Pro-Life Dems!

By ConcernedConservative on March 16, 2010

According to Michigan, Rep. Bart Stupak, he and his group of 12 pro-life House Democrats are being hounded by party leaders, the White House, and the usual Democrat supporters, as quoted in the National Review Online.

Bart Stupak“At this point, there is no doubt that they’ve been able to peel off one or two of my twelve,” said Stupak.  According to Stupak, that group of twelve pro-life House Democrats — the “Stupak dozen” — has privately agreed for months to vote ‘no’ on the Senate’s health-care bill if federal funding for abortion is included in the final legislative language.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.), unions, and others are “twisting the arms” of the 12 who have committed to stay strong in their ‘no’ vote. Stupak says the arguments they have made to him in recent deliberations, “are a pretty sad commentary on the state of the Democratic party.”

What are Democratic members saying? “If you pass the Stupak amendment, more children will be born, and therefore it will cost us millions more. That’s one of the arguments I’ve been hearing,” Stupak says. “Money is their hang-up. Is this how we now value life in America? If money is the issue — come on, we can find room in the budget. This is life we’re talking about.”
