U.S. REPRESENTATIVE BART STUPAK (1st District MI, D - Menominee)

Special thanks to U.S. Representative Bart Stupak for taking time this week for an exclusive sit-down interview with Great Lakes Radio News to discuss his introduction of an amendment in the U.S. House that specifically called for no government funding for abortions, except for cases of rape, incest or to save the life of the mother, in the current legislation reforming health care.

The controversy over the Stupak amendment has been a flashpoint in the nationwide dialog between pro-life and pro-choice advocates and has catapulted the Menominee Democrat into the national limelight over the last few weeks in a way never before seen during his 17 years in Congress.
