According to Nancy Pelosi, 11 House Democrats are Willing to Allow Women to ‘Die on the Floor’

On Thursday, Republicans brought to the House floor a bill on prohibiting federal funds from being used to pay for any part of a health plan that covers abortions under the Obamacare law.

Predictably, Nancy Pelosi immediately flew into full-Pelosi mode:

At a press conference on Capitol Hill today, a reporter asked Pelosi, “Can you comment on the abortion [bill] the GOP is bringing to the House floor tonight?”

Pelosi said: “Under this [abortion] bill, when the Republicans vote for this bill today, they will be voting to say that women can die on the floor and health care providers do not have to intervene, if this bill is passed. It’s just appalling. It falls right into their — all, it’s a health issue.”

Pelosi might want to have a chat with some of her fellow Dems, because eleven of them voted along with Republicans to let women “die on the floor.” They are…

Jason Altmire (D-Pa.)
Dan Boren (D-Okla.)
Jerry F. Costello (D-Ill.)
Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.)
Dan Lipinski (D-Ill.)
Jim Matheson (D-Utah)
Mike McIntyre (D-N.C.)
Collin C. Peterson, (D-Minn.)
Nick Rahall (D-W.V.)
Mike Ross (D-Ark.)
Heath Shuler (D-N.C.)

President Obama has said he’ll veto the bill, and because of makeup of the Senate it probably won’t even get that far.

This take by David Freddoso via Charlie Spiering at the Washington Examiner sums up the Pelosi position:

If you fail to show sufficient enthusiasm for paying to kill someone else’s baby, it is a sign that you’re heartless.

No matter how many times she cites “the word,” I still shudder to imagine a country goverened solely according to Nancy Pelosi’s definition of compassion.

Roll the demagoguery:
