Stupid Bart Stupak amendment - Updated

The line between Church and State gets ever fainter. It appears the Dems will cave to the fundie crowd and have agreed to have an up or down vote on Stupak's anti-choice amendment. The upshot being, virtually no insurer, public or private will be allowed to pay for perfectly legal abortions.

However, you feel about the existence of abortion, the fact remains it's a legitimate medical procedure. And it astounds me that the same people who want to force women to have babies they might not be able to afford, simply in order to satisfy their personal religious beliefs, also rail about "welfare babies" and don't want to spend a cent on public health care to keep them healthy after they're born. Idiots and hypocrites. Makes me want to break crockery in frustration.

Update: Good explanation of the amendment here.

Update two: There's now a petition you can sign to express your outrage and pledge to support a pro-choice primary challenger.
