Michael Moore on Stupak and Boys Who Like to Play with Boys: The C Street Connection

C Street is where power, money, sex and religion meet. So am I led to believe that Bart Stupak lives in a brothel and belongs to a cult? He says he was just renting a room there. But that just doesn't ring true. Something stinks to the high heavens here, and Stupak sees no irony in taking his holier-than-thou position while living in a house that should be dubbed "Hypocrites' Hideaway."

If Stupak were truly pro-life then he'd vote for this bill. Right now, a mother in the U.S. has a ten times greater chance of dying in childbirth than a mother does in Ireland. If you really wanted to reduce abortions, you'd have to ask yourself this question: Why does godless France, where abortion is nearly free (it's covered by their universal health insurance), have 20% fewer abortions per capita than we do?

Stupak's exceptionally stupid comment about "the nuns" gives the game away: it really is about a Catholic hierarchy in absolute denial of its own grievous sins, rooted in puerile fantasies about "dealing," intent on controlling women.  While claiming to to be pro-life.
