    Why?

    It defies settled law on Roe vs Wade.

    The anti-choicers should be ashamed and thrown out of their asses come next primaries.

    They better strip the amendment out of the conference, if the HCR companion passes without it in the Senate version.

    Having an abortion paid for by the government is a constitutional right?

    1. There is no constitutional right to government funding of abortion
    It's a policy debate. As of right now, there is no controlling constitutional mandate to fund abortions.

    5. That Is Not What The Gentleman Is Referring To, Sir
    Though it is execrable social policy, the Hyde regulation seems to have passed Constitutional muster. The Stupak amendment, however, interferes with private contract for a lawful medical procedure, on fairly dubious grounds that may exceed Congressional authority. If it is not stripped out in Conference, as it should be, it certainly will be challenged in the courts.

    2. The Hyde amendment has survived....
    ...twenty-five years without a Constitutional challenge.

    Could just be a coincidence....

    Okay, heres's where I ask what may seem to be a dumb question.Roe Vs Wade was passed by the USSC...so if a Bill defies that ruling, can it be taken back to the Courts?

    Is he right?

    It is unconstitutional because is does not fund abortions, yet throwing people in jail for 5 years because they don't want to buy Obamacare is OK??????

    I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.

    amusing, isn't it? and it does fund abortions to save the mother's life and in cases of rape and incest, though they don't seem to know that.

    there have been posts saying it's a lie that people could go to jail for not buying health insurance. right.
