    Nineteen pro-life House Democrats signed a letter last week to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) expressing their opposition to any health care reform that includes abortion funding.

    “We cannot support any health-care reform proposal unless it explicitly excludes abortion from the scope of any government-defined or subsidized health insurance plan,” the letter read.

    The congressmen did not take a position for or against the so-called “public option” feature of the health care reform bill, which involves the creation of a government-sponsored health insurance poll, but the congressmen were blunt about what they do not want.

    “Plans to mandate coverage for abortions, either directly or indirectly (are) unacceptable,” they wrote.

    so in actuality, those supporting this health care are supporting abortion.

    They are using it as a platform to further the slaughter of children but it is not the only reason for supporting it I am sure.

    You taught me something. I did not know there were any pro-life Democrats in Congress. It is good to see they sent that letter. No doubt House discipline will follow.
