Following Sunday night’s health reform vote, Congressman Bart Stupak was speaking to the House when he was interrupted by someone yelling the phrase “baby killer.” Stupak, who is the leader of Pro-Life Democrats, switched his vote from “No” to “Yes” following an agreement with President Obama to ensure that federal funds will not be used to aid abortions. The video has already been picked up by the cable news networks, airing on all three major networks shortly after it occurred. While the identity of the Representative has not been confirmed, the video has already picked up steam on social networks like Twitter. Watch the video after the jump.
Trendistic shows that between 11PM and 12PM .40% of tweets included the phrase “baby killer.” As Mashable.com explains, whoever made this comment is bound to become an internet icon much like Joe Wilson – who shouted “You Lie!” during a speech by President Obama in September. That clip spawned hundreds of spoofs, so the reaction to this may be similar. You can watch the clip of an unidentified Congressman shouting “baby killer” below.
