I fear that ominous signs indicate a likely terrible defeat for us today. The Politico reports some disturbing news:
THE ATMOSPHERE: The difference between today and November’s vote is stark. On the night before the House vote last fall, the Speaker's office was a beehive of activity. Last night, the speaker was gone by 9 p.m. and most of her staff seemed to filter out within the hour. And the Capitol itself was surprisingly quiet. Even most reporters had gone home...I'm pretty sure we're losing today but let it be known that anybody who votes for this bill is NOT pro-life. They're pro-Democrat. They're pro-themselves. But they are not pro-life.
ABORTION: Anti-abortion Democrats met with White House officials last night on how to word an executive order by Obama that will satisfy their concerns. Leadership needs to peel off some of those lawmakers to get to 216.
The major pro-life organizations have all made it clear that an Executive Order can't negate the bill, as pointed out by Kathryn Lopez. Anyone who supports this bill CANNOT be supported by pro-lifers in coming elections.
And, finally this little video sums up my feelings about the healthcare bill. This is what anyone who cares about the culture of life should be saying to the bill.
