    Senate Defeats Nelson Amendment to Stop Abortion Funding in Health Care Bill

    Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- The Senate on Tuesday voted 54-45 to defeat the Nelson amendment that would have removed the massive abortion funding from the Senate government-run health care bill. With the defeat, pro-life advocates will unite behind a concerted effort to defeat the entire health care bill.

    This healthcare bill is going to end up with a nuclear option ending. It's the only way that the dems will get it passed, they don't have enough of their own votes to pass it any other way. If it does come to pass as such, look out for a changing of the guard next year.

    Good....Now Grubby Harry can kiss the pro life dems buh-bye.

    Next, let's make sure that the cynically dubbed "public option" is forced in and make sure this monstrosity is killed off once and for all.

    That's political suicide. Eugenicists usually don't last too long in public office. Many of these Democrats will never be heard from again after the next election.

    This, coupled with the likely inclusion of the public option, will almost assuredly make this bill's passage a no-go. Praise be to whomever art in heaven.

    It has nothing to do with religion, not for some. I know plenty of atheists who are opposed to abortion. YOU seem to be making everything about religion, not the religious right.
