Which basically makes this meaningless.  Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) admits on TV that the executive order can’t change the law.

Now she references the Hyde Amendment language, but what she fails to say is that has to be renewed every year.  Do you think she’ll vote in favor of doing that?  Please.  But the fact also remains that the bill before Congress doesn’t contain any such language.

The National Right to Life Committee sent out a press release explaining that the executive order can’t fix the problems related to abortion in the health care bill… via The Weekly Standard:

NRLC’s March 19 letter to the House of Representatives, summarizing the seven major pro-abortion components in H.R. 3590, is posted here.

It should be noted that all of the problems listed in the NRLC letter — with the possible exception of no. 5 (pro-abortion administrative mandates) — would be created by and controlled by the proposed statutory language of H.R. 3590. If the bill is signed into law, these statutory requirements and defects are not subject to correction or nullification by the chief executive or his appointees, whether by Executive Order, regulation, or otherwise.  Lawmakers will be responsible for the law that they vote for, and cannot hide behind hollow assurances from the President.

Prof. Robert Destro, a professor of law and former dean of the Columbus School of Law at the Catholic University of America, and an expert on abortion-related litigation, today sent Congressman Stupak an illuminating letter regarding whether the $7 billion in funds directly appropriated for Community Health Centers, in the Senate health bill (H.R. 3590), could be or would be spent for abortions. We have posted the letter here.

It looks like Representative Bart Stupak and his cohort just got duped.

  1. If you go to Conservatives4palin.com or Michelle Malkin’s website you will find a video where Stupak says he would vote for the bill even if it had the Abortion language in it.

  2. They didn’t need to be duped, they just needed some semi-plausible cover because they wanted to vote for it.

  3. I think that people need to start laying off the universal health care plan and let it go through. What harm could it really do? There are several countries that have it already and they are not hurting. That is why is it is a crazy world realy!
