Stupak Beats Down the GOP

11:00 PM
After the GOP submitted a motion to recommit the reconciliation bill to include a more explicit abortion funding ban, a move that would effectively torpedo the reconciliation bill, as the abortion rule is ineligible for modification under reconciliation, Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI), fresh off his deal with the administration, takes to the floor with an impassioned plea to defeat the motion to recommit. It is a dramatic moment, with Stupak, a frequent agitator in the debate, standing with his fellow Democrats.

I still don't understand, what exactly is the position on abortion funding now that the vote is over?
