Bart Stupak Sells Out Pro-Life Movement

Pro-life conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly points out that Bart Stupak is naively trusting that the president will not immediately rescind the Executive Order. She writes:

“Perhaps Mr. Stupak and his fellow pro-life Democrats forget that President Obama’s first Executive Order was the repeal of the Mexico City Policy to allow for international funding of abortion.”

Bart Stupak can no longer say he is pro-life!

Congress can revoke a presidential executive order by passing a bill by a veto-proof (2/3 vote) majority. For example, in 2003 Congress unsuccessfully attempted to revoke President Bush’s Executive Order 13233, which had rescinded Executive Order 12667 (Reagan). The bill, HR 5073, did not pass.

STATEMENT BY CECILE RICHARDS, PRESIDENT, PLANNED PARENTHOOD FEDERATION OF AMERICA, REGARDING REP. BART STUPAK’S AMENDMENT RESTRICTING WOMEN’S HEALTH CARE ACCESS

“Planned Parenthood strongly opposes the Stupak/Pitts amendment, which would result in women losing health benefits they have today. This amendment would violate the spirit of health care reform, which is meant to guarantee quality, affordable health care coverage for all, by creating a two-tiered system that would punish women, particularly those with low and modest incomes. Women won’t stand for legislation that takes away their current benefits and leaves them worse off after health care reform than they are today.

“While Rep. Stupak claims that his amendment simply applies the Hyde amendment to health reform, nothing could be further from the truth.  The Stupak/Pitts amendment would result in a new restriction on women’s access to abortion coverage in the private health insurance market, undermining the ability of women to purchase private health plans that cover abortion care, even if they pay for most of the premium with their own money.

“The fact is, the majority of private health insurance plans currently offer abortion coverage, and the Stupak/Pitts amendment would result in the elimination of abortion coverage in the new insurance market created under health care reform. The Stupak/Pitts amendment upends the carefully crafted compromise in the House bill and unambiguously restricts women’s access to care.”

Will Nancy Pelosi honor a presidential executive order over her former deputy chief of staff?  Cecile Richards served as deputy chief of staff for Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and played a key role in her election as the Democratic Leader in the House of Representatives. 

What’s a federally funded abortion amongst friends anyway?

    He certainly did that. A total moron trusting Obama who voted to actually kill a living baby outside of the mothers womb. Glad to have found you, I see you on VF all the time. My intent is to inform with lots of twisted humor. Hope you will return, I’m Jim

    Belle
    Well done and said. What a heart breaking photo of such an atrocious and de-humanizing crime.
    That we are forced to pay for this and stem cell research, which also kills and destroys life is abominable.
    We live in a time where condoms and the pill should prevent such things from happening 99% of the time. Truly horrible.

    LISA, IT’S GREAT TO HEAR FROM YOU!!!

    I have to admit that the photo makes me sick to even look at. I decided to keep it up so people could have a real good understanding of what they are paying for. If it makes people sick to look at then how can they justify funding such a procedure?? I guess it’s okay if they never see the pictures?

    Earlier today I was stunned to read the following:

    In an unbelievable case that should outrage parents across the country, a public high school in Washington State helped a 15-year-old student get an abortion during school hours without parental consent.

    The teenage girl had taken a pregnancy test at the school’s health center, according to a local news report, and administrators subsequently arranged for her to get an abortion at a county-run clinic. The girl was given a pass during school hours, put in a taxi and sent off to a local facility that’s overseen by the King County Health Department in Seattle. It is not known what classes she missed or if she will be allowed to make up the work.

    The girl’s mother says the only consent form she signed allowed her daughter to be treated at the school’s health center for ailments such as earaches and sports physicals but not for terminating a pregnancy. She assures that nowhere in the paperwork does it mention “abortion or facilitating abortion.”

    Clinic officials told the girl that if she concealed the pregnancy from her family, the abortion would be free of charge and there would be no financial responsibility. The school (Ballard High) is the Seattle District which is the largest in Washington State with more than 45,000 students in 88 schools.

    District officials claim they have no knowledge of what goes on in the high school clinics because the district doesn’t run them. The private company that operates the health facilities, Swedish Medical Center, protects students’ privacy and never divulges medical information, they say.

    The county is ultimately responsible however, because the school clinics are administered by the King County Health Department. The official who oversees the school medical centers points out that in Washington State an individual of any age can consent to an abortion therefore no wrongdoing has been committed.

    Indeed, state law says that parents’ permission is not required for a minor to obtain an abortion, pregnancy test, birth control methods or tests for sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV and AIDS. It is also not necessary to notify a parent before or after the procedure or test. No provision allows a child to miss school without parental consent, however.

    Since 1976, the U.S. government has banned (Hyde Amendment) the use of federal money to pay for abortions but many states—like Washington—use local dollars to fund the procedures at public clinics.

    Stories like this make me sick.

    Jim, well said!! You and I are on the same page.

  7. rosehips Says:

    Belle, have you become pro-life? I thought you were pro-choice?

  8. ohiobelle Says:

    Hello Rose!

    I was pro-choice until a couple of months ago. It was when they discussed an abortion in detail on the House floor. I’ve been opposed ever since that day.

  9. rosehips Says:

    ah. I see. It seems that many peeps around here have been gravatating rightward. I’m sorry.

    I am not pro-abortion either, but I still believe that peeps who want to restrict abortions should work diligently to prevent pregnancy or suggest what to do with all the babies that are born unwanted. I’m not talking about healthy white babies, if you know what I mean. How much should we set aside to raise these children and where should the money come from? Just some fair questions.

  10. ohiobelle Says:

    It was actually 4 months ago.

  11. rosehips Says:

    I wish I knew how we can make birth control work. I have two boys who are testaments to the vigilence of sperm, despite precaution.

  12. ohiobelle Says:

    No apology needed. You are correct, I used to be pro-choice until I started listening to the debate and doing a little research. It’s horrible what the baby goes through.

  13. rosehips Says:

    well, okay maybe one boy. The other, let’s just say the alcohol didn’t kill those wiley swimmers. haha

    love my boys!

  14. ohiobelle Says:

    Rose, How do you feel about ObamaCare passing?

  15. rosehips Says:

    belle, an abortion at 8-12 weeks is doubtfully very horrifying for the “baby”. I don’t really think it is a baby then. Baby’s can be annoying when they cry so much.

  16. rosehips Says:

    I feel awful belle. It has divided our country like no other time in recent memory…like not since Obama’s election.

  17. ohiobelle Says:

    I find it hard to believe Congressmen are getting threats from the Tea Party. Dems from Ohio that voted no are getting death threats from the Unions. I think people are upset ON BOTH SIDES.

    With that being said, I am against the threats.

  18. rosehips Says:

    and I am disheartened by the reactionary responses I have seen from the right. No offense but when those black Congressmen were slurred and spit on? I am appalled at those who claim they are lying. To expect a video documentation to come forth from tea partiers is a bit much in order to make believers out of them? C’mon. I don’t care how much you despise dems, to propose that they would lie about a thing like that is reactionary, in my opinion.

    I feel the same way about the repub who got the window shot out of his office. I believe it happened. I don’t understand why though.

  19. rosehips Says:

    belle, It does not surprise me in the least. I am from redneck country. It is a tea party paradise. And believe me there are plenty of peeps around here that are capable of that kind of racism and hatred.

  20. rosehips Says:

    If you can’t taste the fear in America, you should stick out your tongue. Fear is what is driving people to do such hateful and deplorable things.

  21. ohiobelle Says:

    I don’t believe that happened. If it happened then where is the video? I think they are lying about that.

  22. rosehips Says:

    belle, read my comment. Do you really expect anyone from the tea party movement to come forth with a video, even if one is available?

  23. rosehips Says:

    would you provide a video of the incident if you had taped it?

  24. ohiobelle Says:

    Rose wrote: If you can’t taste the fear in America, you should stick out your tongue. Fear is what is driving people to do such hateful and deplorable things.

    I agree with you on that. I think alot of the anger is from the sweetheart deals and closed door meetings. I don’t consider Obamas 7 hour infomercial to be transparency. lol

  25. ohiobelle Says:

    Rose wrote: would you provide a video of the incident if you had taped it?

    Hell yes I would.

  26. ohiobelle Says:

    I’d probably charge a little for it. lol

  27. rosehips Says:

    that is why I believe the incidents are real. People are so fearful and I believe this fear is being driven by the right wing media whose ratings soar when they feed this fear. It’s a vicious cycle and those who deny it are well, in denial.

  28. ohiobelle Says:

    Rose wrote: belle, read my comment. Do you really expect anyone from the tea party movement to come forth with a video, even if one is available?

    Yes I do think they would come forward. We wouldn’t want 1 assclown to ruin our good name.

  29. rosehips Says:

    and I do believe you would provide a vid, but I don’t think many of the radical tea party members would. And you can see video of very riled up people at the Capitol and I don’t think it is a stretch to imagine things they might say or do. It’s a gang mentality.

  30. rosehips Says:

    phone call, gotta go.

    Rose, Really? C’mon now! MSNBC is worse than Fox! It’s the left wing moonbats at the wheel of this hatred.

  32. ohiobelle Says:

    Okay. I’ll catch up with you later.

    Great to talk to you!

  33. rosehips Says:

    haha belle, well I am not a watcher of msnbc, they are the reactionary left, imo.

    nice to have a civil discussion with you belle. I am capable of that with decent peeps, ya know. Thanks!

    and check out ireports. It’s really getting fun over there. It’s almost like old times. Lots less activity but still divisiveness and active comment threads on a few posts.

    I’ve been doing some political and some just to get hits. haha I posted a fake title on the assignment about cars that have mega miles. I used the title “My Odometer Maxed Out!” on a post about an old Oldsmobile I once owned. It didn’t even come close to maxing out but I’ve got bout 3000 views. lol

    talk to you later!
