Next Vote on Pro-Abortion Health Care Bill Tuesday, Reid May Shut Out Pro-Lifers

The Senate Finance Committee has put off a vote on the fifth pro-abortion health care bill until next Tuesday. News of the decision comes at a time when speculation is rampant that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will use an unrelated bill to get the pro-abortion health care package through the Senate.

The panel had been expected to vote on the Baucus bill this week, but Reid announced today that the vote would not take place until next week.

Republicans, with the exception of pro-abortion Maine Sen. Olympia Snowe, will likely vote against the measure while Democrats will support it.
