Saturday could more than likely be a “day that will live in infamy” as the House voted on the most expansive take over of government this nation has ever seen, and to get the healthcare monstrosity passed, Nancy Pelosi had to concede abortion in the bill. Of course conservative dems and repubs everywhere have been duped. It’s nothing but smoking mirrors. No worries, raging liberals, your precious abortion amendment will be stripped, I’m sure. For those of you that don’t know, the Stupak Amendment was added into the bill stating that abortions would not be publically funded by PelosiCare. But less than two days later, there is already major talk of taking it out. Consider this from White House senior staffer, Debbie Schulz on MSNBC:
“I am confident that when it comes back from the conference committee that that language won’t be there,” Wasserman Schultz said during an appearance on MSNBC. “And I think we’re all going to be working very hard, particularly the pro-choice members, to make sure that’s the case.”
And Ms. Little Debbie wasn’t the only democrat up in arms about the abortion amendment. Senator “Don’t Call Me Ma’am” Boxer has weighed in, confident as well that the amendment will be stripped from the final bill. Even Obama says the language needs to be changed.
It’s interesting to note that there is no way this healthcare bill would have stood a chance in the House without the Stupak Amendment, and with 64 dems voting for it, there’s definitely a rift there. But what makes me so mad is that this ginormous pile of dung called healthcare reform is now making its way to the Senate with or without any Stupak Amendment. We must keep the pressure up to fight this bill, because the fact that our government would force me, a vehemently pro-life woman to pay for someone to kill their unborn child with my tax dollars is a travesty, and one I won’t stand for, nor should you.
