Senate Version of " Health Care" Bill Requires Payment for Abortions

Senator Harry Reid (D-NV), the Senate Majority Leader, has introduced the Senate version of the "health care" bill.  The bill is over 2,000 pages in length and the senators were given 36 hours to read through it.   Then there will be a vote Saturday evening.  What is it with these Saturday votes?  If Senator Reid and Representative Pelosi really want to remedy our health care problems and craft vital legislation, why are they ramming through these monstrosities on weekend nights?  Why are they afraid of the light of the day?  And, why won't they give our legislators sufficient time to review these unwieldy propositions?

I think the answer is clear... they don't want analysis, they want a political victory and they are not concerned about the human cost.

Tom Peters at The American Papist blog highlights a speech by Sen. Mike Johanns (R-Neb) who states that all it will take to defeat the public funding of abortion is for one pro-life Democratic senator to stand up and vote no.  Who will that senator be?  Let's hope and pray that a pro-life Democrat has the courage and the conviction to stand up for human life.
