Over at the National Review Online (NRO), Robert Costa tells us about a telephone interview Bart Stupak had with NRO. In the interview, Stupak tells us about how Pro-Life Dems are starting to cave under pressure from the White House, Pelosi, unions and the nutroots.

There is only one way to describe such thoughts and that is EVIL! Facilitating abortion that snuffs out innocent human life, all for the sake of saving government money is EVIL.

If having the government run health care means we all have to accept such concepts, then I say kill this evil bill right here and right now.
