Hey, Bart. If you really want to reduce abortions, ask yourself this: Why does godless France, where abortion is nearly free (it's covered by their universal health insurance), have 20% fewer abortions per capita than we do?
The Catholic Church is now officially the third major political party in the U.S. Nowhere is this more evident than in the health care debate, as religious leaders to ask parishioners to help kill any health care reform that does not exclude abortion.
Stupak's position on the health care issue likely goes beyond Stupak's own views on the abortion issue or even the legislation itself and can be traced to personal grievances that fall beneath the surface.
