Democratic congressman Bart Stupak continues to fight the good fight against abortion. He told Chris Matthews earlier today that pages 33-44 of the Senate health bill requires tax-payer funded abortions. Heâ€™s a Democrat, and he wants to pass healthcare reform as much as anybody. But he also says that he will not compromise on this issue. He and a handful of other House Democrats will kill healthcare reform if the publicly funded abortions remain a part of the bill. In his own words:
â€œIt’s accurate to say there are at least 12 of us who voted for healthcare that have indicated to the speaker and others that unless you change this language, we will vote against it.â€
Grateful beyond words that there are still some pro-life Democrats.
