Many Democrats who voted for the bill health care bill did so solely because it included the Stupak Amendment, which explicitly prohibited federal funding of abortions. This morning, a top Democrat spoke about how "confident" she was that the Stupak Amendment would be stripped from the bill when it went to the Senate.

I blame the pro-life Congressmen for this one. Without absolute certainty that the Stupak Amendment would get through, how faithful are they really being to their original pledge to oppose abortion in every way, shape or form?
