As you may have heard by now, HR 3962 was passed by the House late last night by a very slim margin. The Stupak/Pitts Amendment passed earlier that evening by a respectable margin. But let's make no mistake about this. The Stupak Amendment is at best a stale doggie-bone. Make no mistake about it. IF this bill makes it through the Senate and then through reconciliation, abortion funding will be restored.
Why do I say that? Because the pro-aborts don't like the Stupak/Pitts Amendment. Planned Parenthood is now on record as opposing HR 3962. NARAL is having a similar snit-fit. Get this strange statement by Nancy Keenan, NARAL president: "This vote is a reminder to America's pro-choice majority that, despite our gains in the last two election cycles, anti-choice members of Congress still outnumber our pro-choice allies." Well, I sure wish she was right on this, because if she were, HR 3962 would have gone down in flames a long time ago. Not to be outdone by her colleagues, NOW president Terry O'Neill sniffs that, "The House of Representatives has dealt the worst blow to women's fundamental right to self-determination in order to buy a few votes for reform of the profit-driven health insurance industry."
My! Don't these feminazis have a flair for statements long on drama and short on substance? They (and we) know full well that abortion funding will be returned. For thus have these slave-drivers ordered! Make no mistake about this. Obama, Pelosi and Reid are (behind closed doors) saying to these broads, "Yessuh, Massah!" as they click their heals together Nazi-style and go do their bidding.
We will have our work cut out for us. I was at the rally at which Steve King and Michelle Bachmann spoke yesterday. I'd say a good 500 folks were there: not bad for less than 48 hours notice. We've got to keep up the momentum as the focus now shifts to the Senate. I think we can take some encouragement at the slim margin by which the bill passed. Clearly the mystique of the Messiah Most Miserable is wearing thin.
