House Vote on Health Care Expected Saturday

WASHINGTON (AP) - House Democrats have cleared an impasse over
abortion that has been holding up a vote on sweeping health care
legislation.

A vote is expected on Saturday - after President Barack Obama
makes a late morning trip to the Capitol to make one final pitch
for the legislation.

According to Rep. Bart Stupak of Michigan, he and other abortion
opponents will be given a chance to insert tougher abortion
restrictions into the legislation during debate on the House floor.

The leadership hopes that no matter how that vote turns out,
Democrats will then unite to give the health care bill a majority
over unanimous Republican opposition.
