Lessons is character … Bart Stupak is not it.
US Representative Bart Stupak from Michigan is already feeling the consequences to his actions. Especially actions where you sell your soul and principles for a political deal instead of protecting the unborn.
The Susan B. Anthony List has revoked an award that was previously given to US Rep Bart Stupak for his Judas-like reversal yesterday in supporting Obamacare after he had claimed for a year that the bill did not defend the rights of the unborn.
An anti-abortion rights organization is withdrawing an award it planned to present Rep. Bart Stupak, after the Michigan Democrat announced Sunday he would support health care reform legislation.
The Susan B. Anthony List had chosen Stupak to receive the “Defender of Life” award at the “Campaign for Life Gala” Wednesday here in the nation’s capital. Stupak and several Democrats said that they would vote for the health care bill after President Obama assured them that no federal funding would be allowed to pay for abortion. Obama released an executive order that emphasized abortions would not be paid for with federal dollars.
“By accepting this deal from the most pro-abortion President in American history, Stupak has not only failed to stand strong for unborn children, but also for his constituents and pro-life voters across the country,” Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, said in a statement shortly before the House was set to vote on the controversial bill.
Stupak had claimed all along that the Obamacare bill was unacceptable because it did not protect the rights of the unborn after the bill had passed the Senate and his anti-abortion language had been taken out. Suddenly Supak accepts a deal with the President that the most pro-abortion President would write an executive order that in essence was useless. That made Stupak flip. Every one knows that an executive order does not reverse law. Stupak still decided to change his vote knowing this.
For one year Bart Stupak was a principled pro-life Democrat until it came time to decide between Party or the unborn. These are the points in life where character is revealed and Stupak folded like a cheap suit.
You have to wonder what else Obama/Pelosi promised Stupak for his treacherous decisions to flip his vote.
