This Bill Is About Health Care, Not Colonoscopies
Nancy Pelosi tells Bart Stupak that there will be no more deals on abortion language before the health care vote on Sunday:
“If you don’t want federal funding for abortion… and you want to have a health care bill,” she said. “This is it.”
She said members may be talking about various things and dismissively mentioned Stupak’s name, adding, “But right now we are just getting votes to pass a bill.”
“This bill is about health care and not about abortion,” Pelosi said. “There will be no further changes in the bill.”
Here is the American Heritage Medical Dictionary’s (2007) definition of “health care”:
The prevention, treatment, and management of illness and the preservation of mental and physical well-being through the services offered by the medical and allied health professions.
Check it out, everyone: Abortion IS health care.
