Pelosi: ‘Women Can Die on The Floor’ If GOP Stops Obamacare Abortion Funding
CNS News ^ | 10/14/2011 | Edwin Mora

(CNSNews.com) -- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that “women can die on the floor” if Congress passes a GOP-backed bill that would prohibit federal funds from being used to pay for any part of a health plan that covers abortion under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare.

At a press conference on Capitol Hill today, a reporter asked Pelosi, “Can you comment on the abortion [bill] the GOP is bringing to the House floor tonight?”

Pelosi said: “Under this [abortion] bill, when the Republicans vote for this bill today, they will be voting to say that women can die on the floor and health care providers do not have to intervene, if this bill is passed. It’s just appalling. It falls right into their -- all, it’s a health issue.”

“This is a health issue and it falls right in with a lot of other initiatives that they had coming up on the floor about clean air, clean water, mercury, you name it,” said Pelosi. “America’s families deserve better than this and, again, today is another example of a wasted opportunity. Instead of taking up even an aspect of the president’s jobs bill that could create jobs that they’re -- I can’t even describe to you the logic of what it is that they are doing. I just know that you will see a large number of women on the floor today fighting for women’s health issues, as well as to point [out] how savage this is about withholding care for a woman because of this legislation.” baby

Pelosi also said the legislation is not a jobs bill. "Everybody in America has the creation of jobs as their top priority and what are we doing but wasting time? I want to yield to Steny [Hoyer] to talk about how ill-fated this legislation is, but not before saying this: Every woman in America should be concerned about this assault on women’s health. This is just one aspect of women’s health. But it has an impact across the board on how women get their health insurance. It is a waste of time. But I’m going to yield to Steny to talk about that.”

The legislation, the Protect Life Act (H.R. 358), as summarized by the Congressional Research Service, would amend “the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) to prohibit federal funds from being to used to cover any part of the costs of any health plan that includes coverage of abortion services. (Currently, federal funds cannot be used for abortion services and plans receiving federal funds must keep federal funds segregated from any funds for abortion services.).”

It also would require “any qualified health benefit plan offered through an Exchange that includes coverage for abortions to also offer a qualified health benefit plan through the Exchange that is identical in every respect except that it does not cover abortions.” (To read the full text, click here, or read the full summary, click here.)

The House of Representatives is expected to vote on the legislation today, Oct. 13. During his weekly press conference today, Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio) defended the bill.

What floor is this idiot referring to? The floor of the House of Representatives? This witch calls herself a 'Catholic'?

Babies can die in the hospital, (heartbeat + brainwave = life & have that at 5 wks of pregnancy) if Obama & Pelosi's has their way. We've suffered an estimated 50 million murders since Roe v Wade. Must at least, objectively answer the law of the land's definition of life to be innocent of abortion-murder!

No mention by PeeLousey of the several Democrats who voted against this monstrosity too. She is way off her meds.

This is going to be awful, walking around and having to step over all these dead women...

I'm too old for this. If I trip over one of 'em I might break my hip.

I guess women are dieing on the floor as we speak? This woman is a nut case. No wonder her husband likes it when she’s in Washington. He doesn’t have to put up with her.

Oh, come on! Most Republicans I know would at least have the common decency to put the poor woman on a gurney.

It occurs to me that this is a perfect time for Boehner to make a strong statement denouncing this kind of hysterical rhetoric, and condemning Pelosi by name.

Why won't that worthless sack SAY something?

The same Democrats who claimed “No Death Panels”, no “Abortion Funding” now are squealing because abortions on demand (at Taxpayer expense) is not going to be available?

... Women AND men ARE being left to die on the floor ...

Democrat funded abortions slaughter female (and
male) babies. Their blood stains the floor until
it is washed down the drain.

Disgusting -—

If women want to murder their babies they should die on the floor. Preferably before they get pregnant.

“Her skull is full of guano where her brain should be.”

The botox is seeping in that direction as well.

I believe Nazi Pelousy made her remarks yesterday (Thursday, 13OCT11).

Since then, approximately 6000 babies have been ripped to little bloody shreds in this Great Republic's abortion facilities.

I hope Nazi Pelousy has nightmares about each and every single one of them.

Just you.

Nancy, federal law prohibits public money being spent on abortions. That’s against the law.

What do you know is going on, Nancy? What abortions are currently being funded with federal money? Think we need to subpeona her bony ass and start prosecuting her and anyone else who knows about this.

It seems that some of the plastic they used in her face to change her from really, really, really, really ugly to really, really, really ugly has seeped into her tiny brain and is turning her into a really, really,really ugly nut job.

Didn’t the hold out ‘blue dogs’ pretend to insist abortion would not be covered by commiecare? I thought Obama signed some sort of executive order on this, in solitude.

I’m sorry, but will women still die if they paid for their own abortions?

Miss Pelosi - 11 of your Democrats also sided with the Republicans.

It is a sad day when we advocate the killing of our young and old for sake of political principal. Life must be respected and protected at all costs.

That’s why Hillary can’t challenge Baraq in the Dem primaries in 012.

IMHO, the Wicked Witch of the West has one final change to under go. Throw a bucket of holy water on her (I take no chances), and watch her and her beautiful evil melt away . . . like in the Wizard of Oz. Alternatively, if someone would drop a house on her, that’s acceptable too.
