Many Dems Who Voted For Stupak Still Voted Against the Bill


Culture Kitchen reports that many of the 39 Democrats that voted for the Stupak Amendment still voted against the final bill.  Had all 39 Democrats who were voting against the bill anyway voted against Stupak, the amendment would have been soundly defeated.  But this way they protected their own interests at the expense of millions of women in the United States.

Liza at Culture Kitchen writes:

Another roll call for tonight’s vote on "PelosiCare" or the HR3962: Affordable Health Care for America Act.
39 Democrats voted against the measure. Many of these same people voted
for the Stupak amedment; which blocks insurance companies from offering
coverage for any abortion medical procedures.
