Chris Matthews' one-sided abortion questions

Blog ››› ››› JAMISON FOSER

Chris Matthews just asked Senators Richard Durbin and Orrin Hatch several questions in a row about the possibility of a public health care plan that might include federal funding of abortions.

The question Matthews didn't ask? "Abortions are legal medical procedures. Why shouldn't a public health insurance plan pay for a legal medical procedure?"

Instead, Matthews' questions all seemed to assume that such funding shouldn't be allowed; he ultimately told Hatch "I think it's going to be an issue, Senator. I think your side may win this ultimately."

Earlier this year, Matthews said the possibility of including family planning services in the stimulus bill "sounds a little like China."
