David Brody has posted video of Democratic Rep. Zoe Lofgren of California admitting that health care legislation would cover abortion.
Here’s a transcript of the exchange, which kicks in around the 6:51 mark:

Jim Antle explained earlier this week why, in practice, it would be impossible to prevent taxpayer funds from subsidizing abortions under Obamacare.
The offer renews after one year at the regular price of $10.99 monthly.
