Schlafly: Health Care Vote Set to Expose the Myth of the 'Pro-Life Democrat'

WASHINGTON, March 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Phyllis Schlafly, president and founder of the conservative grassroots public policy organization Eagle Forum, made the following remarks after the public announcement that formerly pro-life Democrat Bart Stupak (D-MI) will cast a "yes" vote for the Senate health care bill today in the House:

"It is naive for any elected official, especially one who describes himself as 'pro-life,' to expect that a promise to issue an Executive Order that reasserts the intentions of the Hyde Amendment will be fulfilled by the most pro-abortion president to ever sit in the White House. Perhaps Mr. Stupak and his fellow pro-life Democrats forget that President Obama's first Executive Order was the repeal of the Mexico City Policy to allow for international funding of abortion."

"Not only would an Executive Order be rendered meaningless in the face of Congress passing legislation which actively provides for the massive expansion and funding of abortion services, but anyone who doubts the abortion tsunami which awaits this bill becoming law lives in a fantasy world."

"Barack Obama has lined every existing federal agency with the most dedicated pro-abortion ideologues, and we know that he will continue this pattern of pro-abortion appointments when it comes time for him to fill the over-100 bureaucracies created to administer his socialized health care program."

"Any formerly pro-life Democrat who casts a 'Yes' vote for this Senate health care bill tonight will be forever remembered as being among the deciding votes which facilitated the largest expansion of abortion services since Roe v. Wade."

"Mr. Stupak and his Democrat followers have now clarified that you cannot be pro-life and be a Democrat. If abortion was truly their biggest issue, they wouldn't willfully align themselves with the Party of Death."

"This vote will expose the myth of the 'pro-life Democrat.' With this single vote, the Democratic Party will divide our nation into the Party of Death and the Party of Life, and future elections will never be the same."

I can't help but wonder, was the "Stupak Standoff" merely a smokescreen? If so, what was going on behind it that Pelosi didn't want us to see?

Of course ot was a smokescreen. Anyone who listened to any of Stupak's interviews should have known he intended to vote for this all along. Add to that his history of arrogance in dealing with his constituants and it is clear Bart (as pro-life as Bart Simpson) Stupak has only been a pretender when it comes to being against abortion. One more deceiver in D.C.!

As Ms Schlafly stated so well, the Democrat Party is the "party of death;" there is no such thing as a moderate or pro-life Democrat; only progressive, pro abortion politicians.

I've seen other countries fall into this dangerous landslide, and blindly cast their ballots thinking it would do no harm. In England, if a baby is to be aborted, but is born alive, they will simply let it sit to die, unfed, unloved, untouched, a slow painful death. This is what our country is on the verge of. It is worse, much worse, in China. We need to wake up to this, and make our voices heard. Some already are, but Congress obviously has other plans than to listen to the majority at this time. Vote out the Democrats this next election. They never do us any good.
