Nancy Pelosi and House Democratic Leaders have gone
back on their word. They refuse to remove abortion
subsidies from the healthcare bill.
Rep. Bart Stupak has steadfastly opposed these
attempts to hijack healthcare reform with big bailouts for the abortion
Stupak is standing strong on principle and refuses
to roll over.
“Even if [the Democratic Leaders] don’t have the
votes, it’s been made clear to us that they won’t insert our language on
the abortion issue,” said Stupak.
But Stupak says Pelosi is trying to strong-arm the
12 pro-life Democrats aligned with Stupak. The pressure is extremely
intense and Pelosi is willing to win at any cost.
“I am a definite ‘no’ vote,” said Stupak. “The
others are having both of their arms twisted, and we’re all getting
pounded by our traditional Democratic supporters, like unions.”

challengers against anyone who refuses to support this pro-abortion
We can’t stay silent. There’s too much at
stake. These men and women need our help!
These pro-life Democrats need to know that the
American people are on their side. Rep. Stupak says that if pro-abortion

status quo: No federal funding for abortion.
Call these pro-life Democrats. Tell them Stupak is
standing up for the little guy. Tell them to “Stand With Stupak.”
