Orrin Hatch: Stupak of the Senate

To get the health-care bill through, will the left have to let go of abortion? Following Rep. Bart Stupak's (D-MI) controversial amendment to the House health-care bill restricting abortion funding, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) plans to introduce a similar amendment to the Senate's version of the bill. Hatch told Politics Daily that his version will mirror Stupak's language, but notes "It will be much more difficult in the Senate" where "there are so few [Democrats] you can really turn to." This is Hatch's third attempt to restrict federal funding for abortion services.
