More negative consequences for Rep. Bart Stupak, D-MI, flowing from his agreeing to support Obamacare tonight following President Obama's issuance of an Executive Order allegedly insuring that no federal funds will be used to pay for abortions.
"This Wednesday night is our third annual Campaign for Life Gala, where we were planning to honor Congressman Stupak for his efforts to keep abortion-funding out of health care reform- we will no longer be doing so," said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List Fund.
"By accepting this deal from the most pro-abortion President in American history, Stupak has not only failed to stand strong for unborn children, but also for his constituents and pro-life voters across the country," she said.
"Let me be clear: any representative, including Rep. Stupak, who votes for this healthcare bill can no longer call themselves 'pro-life.' The Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund will not endorse, or support in any capacity, any Member of Congress who votes for this bill in any future election," Dannenfelser said.
For these Members, it will be a quick downhill slide to defeat in November," she said.
The problem is simple, according to Dannenfelser: "The executive order on abortion funding does absolutely nothing to fix the problems presented by the health care reform bill that the House will vote on this evening. The very idea should offend all pro-life Members of Congress. An executive order can be rescinded at any time at the President's whim, and the courts could and have a history of trumping executive orders. Most importantly, pro-abortion Representatives have admitted the executive order is meaningless."
The Susan B. Anthony List describes itself as "leading the fight against abortion funding in health care reform for over a year, spending nearly $2 million on a grassroots campaign of targeted television and radio ads, 1.3 million automated calls, 70,000 patch-through constituent calls, 1.2 million letters and petitions to Congress, two media and grassroots tours in pro-life Democratic districts, television ads in six districts and comprehensive polling in 20 pro-life Democratic districts."

Now all we need is for a Pro-abort (Pro-choice) group to give Stupak an award and his fate will be sealed with his maker.
I guess because making an effort is enough to win a participatory trophy in little league for liberals, Stupidpak thought that posturing was going to be good enough. He did after all, cave “for the good of the American people.”
genuine repentance would be necessary for him to get off the hook, if what i believe is true. but would that be enough? if stalin had found religion right at the end, would he find peace in Heaven?
The Right-to-Life groups that endorsed this guy Stupak need to understand they have supported taxpayer-funded abortion. Such groups should now be referred to as so-called pro-life groups, or phony groups.
Maybe Marjorie can go to the U.P. to campaign for his opponent ... now that some of her folks turned him into a pro-life celebrity in the first place.
I am sure Marj knows that some of her associates are knuckleheads.

Democrats, the party of death!
or maybe Dede can fill in for Stupak at the event!
no, they were betrayed by stupak. as was the nation. as were millions of humans who, now, will not draw breath. and millions of others who, because of this bill, will draw their last breath much too soon. for we are not far away from letting the old and other “undesirables” die untreated — not enough to go around, doncha know.
Email this to his office.
damn straight it’s the party of death. how far are we from a medical version of kelo, where health care be apportioned based on the recipient’s perceived ability to pay more taxes than some other patient who is in need of some limited medical resource — which will be a common problem under this legislation?
mark my words. it will happen. and soon.
As far as Obama's buddy Cass Sunstein is concerned, consider your organs already eminent domained.
The Democrats are truly morphed themselves into the PARTY OF CHILD MURDER - and pawns of Satan.
Republicans are the PARTY OF SAVING CHILDREN.
There are no moderate Democrats. Stupak and the rest of these Pro-Murder quislings will answer to Almighty God for destroying His precious, innocent children.
I’m so mad!!! I’m going to do all I can to see these evil Democrats are soundly defeated in November. We need to give time & money ($5, $10, $20+) to the Republican challengers of these frauds.
Just the start of the snowball rolling down the hill (I hope).
GOOD. If he’s Catholic, he should be refused communion.
