Pelosi Rejects Stupak Deal to Remove Abortion Funding From Senate Bill
Washington, DC -- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has, once again, rejected a plea from Rep. Bart Stupak to agree to a deal to remove the abortion funding from the Senate health care bill in exchange for support for it. Stupak and other pro-life Democrats have been hoping to strike the abortion funding in exchange for support.

Rep. Stupak, there’s a whole hell of a lot more wrong with this bill than tax-paid abortions.
It will be added late Sunday morning and the Stupak group will vote yes! Unless they are looking for a way for it to fail and they will use language over abortion as the reason the bill failed. Everyone then saves face until November.
Let’s hope Dizzy Nancy’s rejection of Stupak’s request is the kiss of death for this dastardly piece of commie legislation.
I just heard a Nun on Neil Cavuto say that abortion provision isn’t in the bill and we must pass health care because that’s what Jesus would do. I thought I would throw up. Jesus never, EVER in His whole ministry forced charity. It must come from the heart.
Yes, but he can now oppose it (I hope) and still have coverage with his own little electorate. By changing the Senate bill, he was trying to push this abomination back to the Senate where it would die.
WTH???? How many times have they lied and said abortion funding is NOT in the bill?
Did he say that??? WOW!!!
Agreed. there’s a difference between “What would Jesus do?” and “What would Jesus do at the tip of a Roman spear”.
SMOKERS...this is good news, free coverage for you at the same cost as those who don’t smoke. Liberty...and Justice for ALL..
Pelosi says the bill is about health care, not abortion.
THEN WHY NOT REMOVE THE ABORTION LANGUAGE NANZI?
It really is about government control over many aspects of your private life, as well as government takeover of 1/6th of the economy.
The greatest thing about this is if Stupak and his group stand firm, it will be the Pro Death group that have doomed the bill.
Cavuto just gave a nun who supports Obama a free chance to lie lie and lie some more.
Oh, there is NO provision for abortion. Oh no. And 50 million people are uninsured and 45,000 people die every year because they don’t have health care.
The Dictator is going to twist their arms before the whole group.
Sister is naieve, stupid or just doesn’t care enough to stand up for her faith.
Pelosi will not face the wrath of NOW and the other radical nutty fem groups. No way, no how. This snake is in it for her own skin.
How bout just plain evil?
I refuse to pay for any abortion.
Stupak: Declare jihad - Now!
Is the ‘bama still denying that the bill finances abortions? Just curious...it doesn’t seem that any lie or inconsistency is beyond these people...
Pelosi should be excommunicated from the Catholic Church.
More people will die under Obamacare than under the current system. When health care is rationed because Doctors quit (and because Medicare is cut), and those same doctors are replaced by nurses you’ve got Cuban health care.
There's no denying it. They've made it quite plain.
Nazi Pelosi, Steny Hoyer, Barry Soetoro, and the rest of the Demonic Party leaders are 100%, foursquare, full-bore, wholeheartedly in favour of KILLING BABIES.
Nancy Pelosi is a babykiller.
Steny Hoyer is a babykiller.
Barack Hussein 0bama is a babykiller.
It's that simple.
What was this “nun” wearing?
I put this in another thread..
This nun on Fox news is driving me crazy. A family member (truck driver) didnt have health insurance so he died of prostrate cancer because he wasnt diagnosed early enough. So..lets see, he had a job, but couldnt afford a yearly check up? Is that what she is saying? Bet he afforded cable, internet, cell, etc.....
Also...she is a nun..doesn’t exactly have to worry about her job, income, family income, college tuition, making payroll. It is all other people’s money in her profession that she uses to help the poor. She just extends that philosophy to the govt.
She’s lucky the cops came. I would have gone to her house instead, and given her a taste of that medicine. What jury would convict me?
Here’s all you need to know about the “nun” on Cavuto. She’s as much of a nun as Father Phlegar is a priest.
Simone Campbell, SSS
Sister Simone Campbell, Executive Director of NETWORK since 2004, is a religious leader, attorney and poet with extensive experience in public policy and advocacy for systemic change. In Washington, she lobbies on issues of peace building and economic justice. Around the country, she is a noted speaker and educator on these public policy issues.
Prior to coming to NETWORK, Simone served as the Executive Director of JERICHO, the California interfaith public policy organization that works like NETWORK to protect the interests of people who are poor. Simone also participated in a delegation of religious leaders to Iraq in December 2002, just prior to the war. Since returning, she has spoken and written extensively on her experience.
Before JERICHO, Simone served as the general director of her religious community, the Sisters of Social Service. She was the leader of her sisters in the United States, Mexico, Taiwan and the Philippines. In this capacity, she negotiated with government and religious leaders in each of these countries.
In 1978, Simone founded and served for 18 years as the lead attorney for the Community Law Center in Oakland, California. She served the family law and probate needs of the working poor of her county.
In that, you are quite mistaken.
She's probably a complete apostate, and probably looks like an ugly old lesbian in a frumpy dress ... but she or someone just like her is is running the business of the order.
Sister is NOT a Sister. You never COULD be and vote for such an abomination as abortion. Murder is murder no matter how you slice it or what you call it and...to ask others to pay of it is beyond abomination. Glad I won’t have to answer for it.
Not as ugly as I had figured ... but anybody who hears "nun" and thinks of a lady in a "penguin" dress needs to think again.
oops. wrong thread. I have too many windows open.
This is an abortion of a bill.
Fire the liars. Kill the bill.
Restore our country. The founders kind of knew what they were doing.
Today is St. Joseph’s Day. Patron Saint of the Holy Family and the Worker. I have been saying my Novena to him too that this evil will die before it destroys the American people and our very country not to mention our souls.
She is praying for it to pass. She is praying to St. Joseph for this bill to pass which included funding for murdering new babies before they have a chance to see the face of their mother or father or brothers or sisters.
I think I can safely guess just whose prayers on this vile piece of poison that St. Joseph will choose to answer.
But the order doesn’t have the earn their income..they just go out a fundraise? Maybe some orders make a product and sell it, but people buy it to support the order. Not neccessarily because they actually want the product.
Amen to that. You said it all.
She’s NOT a Nun. Not a real one anyway. Her thought process is NOT that of a Nun.
I think her thought process IS that of a nun...take money from some people to give to other people. Her position on this is consistant.
Have you ever tried to raise funds for a nonprofit?
I spent several years on the BOD of a small pregnancy center ... part of my (completely uncompensated) work was "fundraising".
Try it some time.
And yes, the bills have to be paid ... water, sewer, power, phone, lease, business association, a few paid staff, materials must be purchased ...
Heck ... it might have been easier if we had a product to sell.
She isn’t much of nun is she?
I think they are one and the same...the right thing.
Pelosi is a BABY KILLER!!!!!
They also have the diocese that funds them, and probably have investment income.
They are the catholic version of ACORN
But you are probably right..helping the poor is business...BIG business. Nowadays anyway.
I’m not thrilled with Stupak, who must know that Pelosi is evil and a liar, but at least he is standing firm so far.
Don't count on it.
and probably have investment income.
And what ... you have a problem with investments? Communist much? Investments must be managed, in any case.
Both of which distract from the truth, that for the vast majority of non-profits (including religious orders), fundraising is an active pursuit.
You're barking up the wrong tree. There's lots wrong with this wretched woman, but this isn't part of it.
The big question...do their taxes go toward any of this socialism or are they tax exempt. My bet is that the orders don’t pay taxes...but they want everyone elso to PAY MORE AND MORE AND MORE TAXES.
Are you trying to pick a fight?
This is ridiculous.
< wait for it >
< Drumroll >
PAY LOCAL INCOME TAXES, STATE INCOME TAXES, FEDERAL INCOME TAXES, and FICA ... Just like you and me.
I thought Peelozi said there is no abortion language in the bill? Like trying to nail Jello to the wall.
Where did I say I have a problem w/ investments? The church and all of its branches have investments. They also get money from parishinors..through special collections. They have nun orders and brotherhoods come through periodically to talk and collect. I don’t have a problem with their good works, but I do have a problem w/ the nuns supporting this, and 2...thinking it is just fine to up the taxes on everyone else. We’ve always giving generously to the church and it’s causes, but if they are encouraging my taxes to go up, well we might not have much left to give them anything beyond the actual church expenses.
