The Hill reports:

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), the Democrats’ chief deputy whip in the House, said that she and other pro-abortion rights lawmakers would work to strip the amendment included in the House health bill that bars federal funding from subsidizing abortions.

“I am confident that when it comes back from the conference committee that that language won’t be there,” Wasserman Schultz said during an appearance on MSNBC. “And I think we’re all going to be working very hard, particularly the pro-choice members, to make sure that’s the case.”

House Democrats put themselves into a pickle over the weekend when they accepted an amendment, sponsored by Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.), prohibiting abortion coverage, not only in the public plan being proposed in the House health reform bill, but also in the subsidized private plans found on the newly proposed insurance exchange. Stupak and other moderate Democrats want assurances that no federal funds will go to provide abortions, and they’ve hinged their support for the overall bill on the inclusion of that ban.

Liberal lawmakers in support of abortion rights, however, are also vowing to kill the overall bill unless the Stupak language is removed. One side will have to give, or the entire health reform effort goes up in flames.
