Healthcare debate's next hurdle: abortion
With House leaders struggling to reach agreement on healthcare legislation, a new hurdle has emerged: abortion. Some conservative Democrats are threatening to pull their support from the massive healthcare bill unless their concerns over potential federal funding of abortion procedures are met. They fear that the Obama administration will take advantage of an expanded government role in healthcare to increase the availability of abortions nationwide. Republicans, meanwhile, are trying to use the divisive issue to build opposition to the bill.
