Pro-life Democrat Bart Stupak: White House Pressuring Me to Keep Quiet on Abortion Language in Senate Health Bill


Transparency and Open Government

Memorandum for the Heads of Executive Departments and Agencies

SUBJECT: Transparency and Open Government

My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government. We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government.

Government should be transparent. Transparency promotes accountability and provides information for citizens about what their Government is doing. Information maintained by the Federal Government is a national asset. My Administration will take appropriate action, consistent with law and policy, to disclose information rapidly in forms that the public can readily find and use. Executive departments and agencies should harness new technologies to put information about their operations and decisions online and readily available to the public. Executive departments and agencies should also solicit public feedback to identify information of greatest use to the public..."

- Barack Obama

So much for promises of accountability and transparency. The forces behind a New World Order and the Moloch State promise these while they lead us through the murky waters of deception and manipulation.

The Obama administration promises the American public "an unprecedented level of openness in Government" while shutting the Republicans out of the Health Bill debate and telling a concerned pro-life Democrat to "keep quiet" on abortion language in the Bill.

This is the change we can believe in?

Washington, DC ( -- Tuesday morning, the Senate approved the Harry Reid manager's amendment to the government-run health care bill. Reid's amendment includes the so-called "compromise" language he agreed on with embattled Sen. Ben Nelson of Nebraska that keeps abortion funding in the bill.

The Senate voted on the manager's amendment, number 3276, on a 60-39 vote.

All Democrats in the chamber voted for the amendment while all Republicans, except absent pro-life Sen. Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma, voted against it.

No dialogue. Only shady backroom deals and corruption. The whole deal is rife with corruption and stinks to heaven. A shameful moment for the Democratic Party. A shameful moment for America.

Senate Health Care Reform Bill is an Abortion Bill

By Steven W. Mosher

If Reid's bill becomes law, a federally funded and managed health care plan will cover elective abortions for the first time.

FRONT ROYAL, Va. (Population Research Institute) - One of the most pro-life members of the U.S. Senate has now clarified what the pro-aborts and their liberal allies in the media have been trying desperately to obscure: The Senate "health care" bill as now written--because of the backroom deal between Harry Reid and Ben Nelson--will force us all to pay for abortions. The time to call your senator is now.

Henry Hyde, whom I knew personally, was a pro-life hero. For over three decades the amendment which bears his name forbid the federal government from funding abortions. Henry was convinced that abortion was the taking of an innocent human life, and insisted that, as a minimum, Americans should not be forced to pay for it with their tax dollars.

The Senate "health care" bill trashes that principle. According to Senator Sam Brownback, "Despite the promises of the Obama administration and the Democratic leadership that the health care bill would maintain the status quo on the issue of abortion, the legislative language revealed by Majority Leader Harry Reid late last week radically changes that status quo and sets the tragic precedent of providing federal funding for abortion"...
