To The Unborn News For You ~ Bart Stupak CAVES To Baby Killing Obamacare Bill

Democrat Rep. Bart Stupak announcing his decision to vote "Yes" on the Senate Health Care Bill today as a result of a deal worked out with President Obama. In return, Obama will issue an Executive Order that Stupak says will prevent Federal Funds from being used for abortions. The Executive Order will not be issued until after passage of the Health Care Bill.


This Health Care Bill Means More Dead Babies & More Wounded Mothers! Congressman Smith


Executive Order Hijinks

Andy McCarthy

I know we tire of the hypocrisy, but I really think this is remarkable. We spent the eight years through January 19, 2009, listening to Democrats complain that President Bush had purportedly caused a constitutional crisis by issuing signing statements when he signed bills into law. Democrats and Arlen Specter (now a Democrat) complained that these unenforceable, non-binding expressions of the executive's interpretation of the laws Bush was signing were a usurpation Congress's power to enact legislation.

But now Democrats are going to abide not a mere signing statement but an executive order that purports to have the effect of legislation — in fact, has the effect of nullifying legislation that Congress is simultaneously enacting?

The Susan B. Anthony List observation that EOs can be rescinded at the president's whim is of course true. This particuar EO is also a nullity — presidents cannot enact laws, the Supreme Court has said they cannot impound funds that Congress allocates, and (as a friend points out) the line-item veto has been held unconstitutional, so they can't use executive orders to strike provisions in a bill. So this anti-abortion EO is blatant chicanery: if the pro-lifers purport to be satisfied by it, they are participating in a transparent fraud and selling out the pro-life cause.

But even if all that weren't true, how do we go from congressional Democrats claiming that signing statements were a shredding of the Constitution to congressional Democrats acquiescing in a claim that the president can enact or cancel out statutory law by diktat?

GOP Leader: “Make no mistake, a ‘yes’ vote on the Democrats’ health care bill is a vote for taxpayer-funded abortions.”

WASHINGTON, DC – House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) issued the following statement on a potential Executive Order from the White House on abortion:

“The law of the land trumps any Executive Order, which can be reversed or altered at the stroke of a pen by this or any subsequent President without any congressional approval or notice. Moreover, while an Executive Order can direct members of the executive branch, it cannot direct the private sector.

“Because of Roe v. Wade, courts have interpreted the decision as a statutory mandate that the government must provide federal funding for elective abortion in through federal programs. In other words, no Executive Order or regulation can override a statutory mandate unless Congress passes a law that prohibits federal funding from being used in this manner. Legal experts at the US Catholic Conference of Bishops, National Right to Life Committee, Americans United for Life, and Family Research Council have confirmed this view that if the Senate bill is signed into law, it is a statutory mandate for the new health plans to include federal funding of elective abortion. The need for an Executive Order is evidence that this is true, and Congressional Democrats know it. Make no mistake, a ‘yes’ vote on the Democrats’ health care bill is a vote for taxpayer-funded abortions.”

Hey Stupidiac.....blood is on your hands and there is NO WAY you can spin this!!!!

Thank you Boehner and I am also glad McCarthy weighed in on this—he’s got a great legal mind.

Bart Stupid-pak this man is an Idiot. An Executive order can be recinded in an instant, with the stroke of 'half-Blacks' pen.

As soon as obama got into office he recinded a bunch of Bush's Executive Orders, or he can recind or amend his own. Stupak is too stupid to be in normal society let alone a representative of the people.

Once the bill gets signed by Obama, Emanuel will pay Stupak a visit, in the congressional showers, and tell him to stick it where the sun doesn't shine. How do people this stupid and gullible get elected to congress?

Fight on, my merry men all, I'm a little wounded, but I am not slain; I will lay me down for to bleed a while, Then I'll rise and fight with you again.
- John Dryden

we are not just fighting obama and his ilk, we are at war with Soros' and his foundation and every other left wing nut group they can scrape off the bottom of scum lake.

It is more obvious than ever that obama has a puppeteer pulling his strings, and a ventriloquist talking for him. We are at war to the end of this thing. We have reached the point it is US versus them and the goal is to save our country, America.

We have a reason to fight they don't, this is our country. these usurpers don't have a country.
