One of the House Democrats who had been undecided over the health care bill because of concerns it would put public money toward abortion says she is voting for the measure.

Ohio Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur said Sunday she will support the bill when it comes to a vote later in the day.

In a statement, Kaptur says she is convinced that the bill will maintain existing law on abortion. She says the bill addresses the nationwide problem of affordability of insurance plans.

Kaptur has been an ally of Democratic Congressman Bart Stupak, whose opposition to the bill because of concerns it would foster public funding of abortion has been a major hurdle for its passage.
