I find this leftist feminist caterwauling about the Stupak rider on the Pelosi Health Care Nationalization legislation very amusing. As many have pointed out, a government big enough to give you everything is big enough to take away anything. These people supported this legislation primarily because they thought they were being promised health care that would be paid for by someone else. Now that they’ve surrendered their virtue of having rights to health care outside of the government, they are shocked shocked to find that other factions can take it away. But never will it occur to them that centralization is the real problem.

Orrin Judd noted this a while back with this cite —

[NARAL] urges lawmakers to “vote against any plan that takes coverage for abortion away from women who already have it in their private insurance plans.”

— which is an implicit admission that the expected legislation will nationalize health care and de facto control what health care services can be purchased with insurance. The same thing here. Both sides know this, but only one side has to consistently lie about it in order to remain politically viable.
