UDPATE, 10:38a: Ed Morrissey at HotAir has a list of the Stupak 12 – which includes the lone Republican who voted for the House version when it contained the Stupak amendment. And here’s a Hardball clip from last night wherein Stupak confirms the #12 to Chris Matthews that he reiterated this morning on GMA

10:15a: All signs point to President Obama and Democrat congressional leaders attempting a process called reconciliation to pass a socialist healthcare bill that includes public funded abortion. This means only 51 votes would be required rather than 60. How times have changed….

But what else have we come to expect from Obama other than lies and Chicago style political coercion and thuggery? And he’s quite imaginative. Yesterday the Weekly Standard reported Obama nominated the brother of a Democrat rep who previously voted against Obamacare to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.
But I digress. The complicated reconciliation process means the House would have to pass the Senate’s healthcare plan, which includes public funded abortions.
This morning on Good Morning America pro-life Democrat Rep. Bart Stupak said he has 12 votes against the Senate version as it currently stands, adding, “We’re prepared to take the responsibility. I mean, I’ve been catching it ever since last fall. Let’s face it, I want to see health care. But we’re not going to bypass some principles and beliefs that we feel strongly about.”
Here’s what those 12 votes would mean, according to the ABC headline…

The 2nd video below is that GMA interview. Pro-abort DHHS Sec. Kathleen Sebelius speaks 1st and proceeded to tell a whopper by claiming public funded abortion isn’t in the Senate healthcare plan.
So I’m reposting the 1st video, from the White House website December 21, which shows Sebelius explaining how public funding of abortions will work under the Senate healthcare plan, equally paid by all. Read the transcript here. Sebelius appears to have a cold. People around her must not be coughing in their armpits.

The reconciliation attempt to pass healthcare is their last chance. Pro-lifers must pull out all stops now to urge their House representative to vote against this bill. Go here, type in your zip code, and make your call. You can also send an email by typing in your zip here.
