Harry Reid, False Pro-Lifer

Since 2005, Senate majority leader Harry Reid has voted against pro-lifers more often than with us. But he still calls himself pro-life. Today John McCormack reports that Reid could support a national-health-care plan that covers abortion. At some point the press ought to stop letting him spin his record as pro-life. Bonus: Reid’s spokesman Jim Manley tries to bluster his way through some questions on the matter.
