    ...or one of his staffers, anyway, emailed me a curt response to my complaint about the horrible Senate version of the Stupak Amendment:

    Please do not reply to this e-mail. If you need to send another message to Senator Nelson, please use the form on his Web site:

    Dear Mrs. Kenoyer:

    Thank you for contacting me regarding the health care reform process as it relates to abortion.

    I am opposed to Federal funding for abortions except as set out by the Hyde Amendment--that is, in case of rape, incest, or to protect the life of the mother. I support adoption and reducing the number of unwanted pregnancies. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, introduced by Senator Reid on November 18, follows this precedent, which has guided Federal abortion policy since 1976.

    Senator Reid's bill represents a good-faith compromise on this difficult issue. As Congress continues to work on improving America's health care system, I will be sure to keep your views in mind. Thank you again for taking the time to contact my office, and please do not hesitate to do so in the future.

    Senator Bill Nelson

    Gee, now we know where the so-called "Democrats" in the Senate stand WRT healthcare, particularly women's healthcare needs.
