The Kiss of the Abortion Industry
Barbara Boxer and Patty Murray declare their support for the current faux compromise:
We said all along that we wanted to ensure there was a firewall between private and public funds – this compromise achieves that.
We said we would not accept language that prohibited a woman from using her own private funds for her legal reproductive health care – this compromise meets that test.
And we said we would stop Stupak – which we did. Let’s be clear – we were both much happier with the Capps language and the language in the underlying bill.
But compromise was necessary to get a health care bill for the American people, and this compromise achieves that.
