MSNBC: Bart Stupak Called ‘Baby Killer’ By GOP Rep On House Floor

A Republican members of Congress apparently called Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) a "baby killer" near the end of the day-long House debate on health care Sunday night.
MSNBC: Bart Stupak Called ‘Baby Killer’
In an indication of just how polarized our politics have become, pro-life Democrat Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI), who held out until the last minute for more restrictive language on federal funding for abortion, was called a “baby-killer” as he spoke on the House floor tonig

House Republicans, in an effort to derail the bill, introduced a "motion to recommit" that would have reintroduced the abortion amendment cosponsored by Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) and Rep. Joseph Pitts (R-Pa.).

In a dramatic gesture, the pro-life Stupak rose to speak against the amendment saying that it was nothing more than an effort to deprive 32 million Americans of health insurance. Democrats rose to applaud the much-maligned Stupak.

"It's your bill!" shouted several chastened members from the GOP side, as the chamber descended into chaos. Once order was restored, a GOP member then shouted at Stupak: "Baby killer!"

Don't Miss it

Will the "Baby Killer" shouter, please step forward and get your congressional spanking! The Republican congressman from Texas who shouted out, "Baby Killer" during the health care bill debates, claims he said, "It is a baby killer."

What I find very interesting about this whole thing are the gasps and the anger of the actual baby killer liberals in congress that truly do vote for the killing of the unborn. I mean, think about it. These people want to put their voices to the killing of the unborn, nothing less than what Hitler did to the Jews, but they gasp and are shocked, at being called a "Baby Killer?" What gives? I guess the truth really does hurt sometimes!
