Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) has received several hate-filled phone messages from people angry about his decision to cut a deal with the White House on abortion funding.
The anti-abortion rights lawmaker reached an accord with the White House this weekend, agreeing to support the Democrats' healthcare reform measure if President Barack Obama signed an executive order reinforcing existing laws that ban federal funds for abortion services.
"I hope you die," says one message.
"Go to hell, you piece of s***," says another.
Stupak's deal angered some opponents of abortion rights who believe that the order will not prevent federal dollars for abortion services under the healthcare law.
Leaders in Congress have expressed concern with threats made against lawmakers who supported the legislation.
Here is video from CBS News, which obtained the messages:
