15 Catholic Senators Join the Catholic Hall of Shame by Voting to Fund Abortion

In an editorial in the New York Times on December 8, 2009 Congressman Bart Stupak, whose amendment to the House version of the Health Care Bill prohibited federal funds from being used to kill unborn children by abortion, set the record straight. He unmasked the campaign of misinformation unleashed by those who oppose the Right to Life and seek to fund abortion with tax dollars: “…Over the past month there has been a great deal of discussion about the Stupak-Ellsworth-Pitts amendment in the House health care reform bill. Unfortunately, much of this discussion has been driven by misinformation about what our amendment does and does not do. I would like to set the record straight: Our amendment maintains current law, which says that there should be no federal financing for abortion.
