UPDATE, 3:45p: You’ll recall Bart Stupak never released the names of his supposed “Stupak Dozen” bloc, so we’ve always been left to piece the list together ourselves.

Battleswarm Blog has posted a slightly different configuration of the bloc you might find interesting, with his count being 8 gone and 3 remaining.  If you combine Battleswarm’s and mine you get a total of 10 gone and 4 remaining. (Battleswarm’s additional losers were Rep. Paul Kanjorski (D-PA) and Rep. Solomon Ortiz (D-TX).)

Another name I now recall sometimes mentioned in the bloc was Rep Marion Berry (D-AR), who, like Stupak, decided to retire rather than run again. That seat was won yesterday by Republican pro-lifer Rick Crawford.

So the “Stupak Dozen” could conceivably be up to 15, which is way more than even a baker’s dozen. But with each name added to the list, the bloc looks worse off.

12:31p: Of the 10 11 pro-life Democrats who flipped and voted for Obamacare on March 21, despite the fact it allows for taxpayer funded abortions on March 21, 2010, only 4 are still left standing today.

Those gone are:

Bart Stupak (D-MI)
Kathy Dahlkemper (D-PA)
Steve Dreihaus (D-OH)
Brad Ellsworth (D-IN)
Alan Mollohan (D-WV) (added)
Jim Oberstar (D-MN)
Charlie Wilson (D-OH)

Those left are:

Jerry Costello (D-IL)
Joe Donnelly (D-IN)
Marcy Kaptur (D-OH)
Dale Kildee (D-MI)

One of the sweetest victories for me last night was Dr. Dan Benishek’s, the 100% pro-life Republican who beat the Democrat in Stupak’s old district.

I met Dr. Dan a couple weeks ago and came away thinking very highly of him.

The lone pro-life Democrat who stayed true to his convictions, Dan Lipinski, won his race handily.

Susan B. Anthony List focused the majority of its energies on ousting 6 of the 11 and saving Lipinski. To that end, SBA List helped defeat 5 of the 6:
