Video:Bart Stupak said that he’d vote for Obamacare even if it funded abortion
Last year Rep. Bart Stupak speaking in Cheboygan, MI at a townhall meeting stated that he would vote for Obamacare even if it included taxpayer funded abortion. Of course he did not realise that his comments were being recorded. So no surprise that he has folded and decided to betray the unborn. Those who vote for Obamacare have blood on their hands. Millions of innocent unborn children will be butchered with taxpayer dollars. Rationing will ensure that millions of elderly Americans will die. The Democratic Party is committing political suicide.
Stupak can waffle all he likes about an Executive Order. The following is the reality:
1. An executive order can be rescinded any time. President Obama could reverse it next week, next month, or next year. Should another pro-abortion president be elected in the future, it could be rescinded on inauguration day.
2. An executive order will not prevent insurance companies that provide abortion from participating in the exchanges.
3. Abortion funding in the health care legislation can be only be removed using the legislative process. An executive order not only doesn't fix the problem, it isn't needed to fix the problem, and could not stand a legal challenge. If Democrats are serious about protecting taxpayers from funding abortion in the health care bill, they must use the legislative process to fix the problem.
Pro aborts in the Democratic Party would not agree to this without guarantees on abortion. Stupak has sold out.
Remember Congressman Henry Hyde's words:
"When the time comes, as it surely will, when we face that awesome moment, the final judgment, I've often thought, as Fulton Sheen wrote, that it is a terrible moment of loneliness. You have no advocates, you are there alone standing before God -- and a terror will rip your soul like nothing you can imagine. But I really think that those in the pro-life movement will not be alone. I think there'll be a chorus of voices that have never been heard in this world but are heard beautifully and clearly in the next world -- and they will plead for everyone who has been in this movement. They will say to God, 'Spare him, because he loved us!'"
