Even as a number of lawmakers who opposed the previous health-care bill switch sides, giving House Speaker Nancy Pelosi more leverage over the remaining holdouts, Democrats were still looking for a compromise that could satisfy pro-life House members this weekend. Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI) has indicated he'd like to vote for the bill, but wants stricter measures on abortion funding which he believes could be included in a separate bill or amendment.
