Senate Committee to Vote on Pro-Abortion Baucus Health Care Bill This Week

After rejected pro-life amendments last week that would have ensured the Baucus health care bill does not fund abortions and to protect the conscience rights of medical professionals, the Senate Finance Committee plans to vote on the legislation later this week.

The vote had been expected as earlier as Tuesday but the panel's chairman and the sponsor of the measure, pro-abortion Sen. Max Baucus, promised members of the committee that a vote would not occur until it received a financial analysis of the bill from the Congressional Budget Office.

The committee is the last of five Congressional committees -- two in the Senate and three in the House -- on different health care bills.

Each of them, including the Kennedy measure in the Senate and the three versions of HR 3200 in the House, include massive abortion funding and mandates.
