Under the bus, ladies!

The health financing reform fight has been no exception to this trend, and I don't know if I'm even capable of conveying how angry it makes me that Obama's signaling he's willing to gut reproductive health coverage in even private insurance plans, and almost certainly to exclude it from any public option, just so he can stake a claim to being the "last" president to deal with health care.
If you like the coverage you have, you can keep it. Probably. Unless you're a chick.
As I replied in comments:
Damn. Reproductive rights was, IIRC, about the only actual progressive issue where Obama had a solid record in the Senate (not that he especially touted that on the campaign trail).
This news is not too surprising, though, given his penchant for chiseling the mortar out of the wall between church and state. It's a little late for NARAL to notice, though, isn't it?
