.- An interview with Rep. Bart Stupak, the Michigan pro-life Democrat who rallied 64 Democrats to amend the House health care bill to ban federal funding for most abortions, will be broadcast on EWTN Friday evening.

Arroyo, writing in a Friday e-mail, reported that Stupak has told him he is determined to accept “no compromise” on abortion. The Congressman wants the Hyde Language to apply to the federal health care bill in order to bar government from funding abortion except in very limited cases.

“With the defeat of the Nelson amendment in the Senate, Stupak and his band of pro-life democrats are the last line of defense,” Arroyo wrote.

“After weeks of ignoring him, the White House arranged a meeting with Stupak last night. They are obviously nervous--and they should be,” he revealed.

The EWTN host, who described Stupak as a “committed Catholic,” said the interview will reveal what the Congressman is prepared to do next and how he intends to keep his pro-life language in any health care bill.

The interview will be broadcast on EWTN’s The World Over at 8 p.m. Eastern Time Friday night.
