That is apparently the prevailing opinion among Congressional Democrats. This from a interview with Congressman Bart Stupak:
Stupak notes that his negotiations with House Democratic leaders in recent days have been revealing. “I really believe that the Democratic leadership is simply unwilling to change its stance,” he says. “Their position says that women, especially those without means available, should have their abortions covered.” The arguments they have made to him in recent deliberations, he adds, “are a pretty sad commentary on the state of the Democratic party.”
What are Democratic leaders 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.”
If Democrats push this through, Rep. Stupak should either switch parties or resign Congress. He cannot caucus with a party that bargains away human life. Set aside the issue of socialized medicine for a moment. We are going to subsidize wholesale murder of infants as taxpayers, in part because it is cheaper to abort babies than pay for them.
Call your Senators and your Representative and tell them to vote NO on tax-payer funded infanticide.
