When I consider what Stupak has done, I can’t but think that in his mind it is more just to provide care for millions than to hold out over one issue that he hoped could be handled with the EO.
NOT saying that I agree with this, but it’s the only thing that makes sense in regards to his actions.
But, I am reminded of the tale of the Good Shepard that left the flock of 99 to search out the one lost sheep. Jesus would have left behind all those millions to save even one of his innocents from abortion.
It is not the government’s duty to “provide” stuff for people.
It IS the government’s duty not to discriminate in the application of the homicide laws—protecting some people and not protecting others.
