Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

It was always about abortion,

...never mind FOCA or anything else. The passage of this bill will insure the "right" to kill a baby. That's what it was always about, otherwise this issue wouldn't be nonnegotiable, Pelosi & Co. could pass their legislation right now if they'd exclude abortion. I'm not saying the whole point of "healthcare reform" was furthering abortion, but it's part of the bedrock foundation for the bill.

Washington, DC ( -- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has, once again, rejected a plea from Rep. Bart Stupak to agree to a deal to remove the abortion funding from the Senate health care bill in exchange for support for it. Stupak and other pro-life Democrats have been hoping to strike the abortion funding in exchange for support.

As reported, Stupak said this morning in an interview that he is still negotiating and still hoping for a separate bill to ban abortion funding.

But ABC News' Jonathan Karl reports Pelosi has said no deal.

“I haven't heard any of that," she said about a potential bill to ban abortion funding to go alongside the Senate measure funding abortions, though she conceded, "There are members who may be talking."

“If you don't want federal funding for abortion... and you want to have a health care bill,” she added, falsely making it appear the Senate measure bans abortion funding. “This is it.”

ABS indicates Pelosi said members may be talking about various things and dismissively mentioned Stupak’s name, adding, “But right now we are just getting votes to pass a bill.”

“This bill is about health care and not about abortion," Pelosi said. “There will be no further changes in the bill.”

West Virginia Democrat Nick Rahall, another pro-life Democrat who says he will vote no if no deal is struck, joins Stupak in hoping something can be arranged.

“There could be some kind of commitment from the other body to act on this later … to ensure that the Senate language does not remain law,” he told The Hill. They are looking for “some type of language we can rely on in the Senate” and a “promise [from the Senate] to act in the future.”

Rahall said such an agreement would net Pelosi 6-10 votes for the bill.

“It’s pretty clear that [the Stupak amendment] is the will of the House,” he said.

But House Democratic Caucus Chairman John Larson, a pro-abortion Connecticut Democrat, told Politico that Pelosi and her Democratic allies expect to win enough votes without the pro-life Democrats.

Politico also indicates that Stupak has been working with House and Senate parliamentarians on trying to figure out a way to get a sidebar bill approved -- perhaps through the House and Senate first before voting on the pro-abortion Senate bill.

But any deal would likely require pro-life advocates to place their bets on the Senate passing a House bill to ban abortion funding, even though the Senate doesn't have enough votes and rejected an amendment on the Senate side to do that.

And Stupak himself has said he doesn't trust a Senate vote after the fact.

“Right now, they got the trifecta: They got the House, they got the Senate and they got a president,” he said. “So basically, they said, ‘Your right-to-life amendments are over.’ And they've proven that.

“So one of the offers is, ‘Why won't you just drop this for now? We're going to work on it later. This thing doesn't kick in till 2018,” Stupak continued. “Well, jeez, after you tell us no to our face — ‘You're never going to get anything’ — why would I suddenly think you're going to give me something now? I'm a little slow, but I'm not that slow.”

Under the Senate health care bill that will be the main bill Obama and Democrats push through Congress, there is no ban on abortion funding. While some states can opt out of funding abortions under the plan, taxpayers in other states will be forced to pay for them.

But the bill contains other pro-abortion problems that are concerns for pro-life advocates.

The bill requires that at least one health care plan be promoted across the country that pays for abortions, more abortion funding would come via the affordability credits, and many of the so-called limits on abortion funding in the Senate bill are temporary and could expire or be overturned at a later date.

The Senate health care bill also pays for abortions under the Indian Health Service program.

And it contains the Mikulski amendment that would allow the Obama administration to define abortion as preventative care and force insurance plans to pay for abortions.

Finally, the Senate bill does not contain language needed to offer full conscience protection for pro-life medical workers and facilities.

We can bet on active persecution of prolifers in the near future, get your Bibles and guns ready now.
