    you might just snag a vote or two away from the Stupak bloc with a deal like that. Secondly, you give Stupak and his ilk some cover to reverse course and say "We got concessions. There will be no public funding for abortions. We can now vote for the bill." Perhaps as a sweetener you add an explicit ban on public clinics performing elective abortions. No, I don't think it will work, but maybe it's worth a shot, if for no other reason than to get the negotiations away from the original Stupak language.
