This is so hard to witness. What has happened to protecting and defending those who need us the most, the unborn? Where is the excommunication of Pelosi, Biden and all Catholics who voted for this? When are we going to stand up for what we preach?

Tragic. Worth pointing out that there was bipartisan opposition to the bill. 34 Democrats joined all the Republicans in voting NO. The Stupak Democrats all along were Democrats who wanted to vote for the bill - and were looking for something to sooth theri consciences over it being an abortion funding bill. The hony executive order gave them the out they wanted.

Also, it does prove that the bill does pay for abortion. Otherwise, no need for a smoke screen executive order.
