Dems keep pressure on Stupak over healthcare bill and abortion concerns
By Jordy Yager – 03/07/10 12:34 PM ET
Abortion continued to loom Sunday as the thorny issue that could paralyze the momentum of healthcare reform efforts in the home stretch.
Across the Sunday morning shows, lawmakers took sides over whether the final healthcare bill contains language that would allow people receiving government subsidized healthcare to obtain an abortion, and a White House official accused abortion opponent Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) of being “misinformed” about the Senate bill.
But I don’t see where the article clearly explains this “pressure.”
Please everyone here write your congressman – your Representative but also your Senators.
