Stupak slams bishops' 'hypocrisy'

U.S. Rep. Bart Stupak, the pro-life Michigan Democrat whose support guaranteed passage of health care reform, accused the U.S. bishops and pro-life groups of hypocrisy for criticizing the executive order that allowed him and other pro-life democrats to vote for the bill.

"The [National] Right to Life and the bishops, in 2007 when George Bush signed the exective order on embryonic stem cell research, they all applauded the executive order," Stupak told the Daily Caller on March 23.

"So now President Obama's going to sign an executive order protecting life and everyone's condemning it. The hypocrisy is great," he said.
