California expansion of CHIP

This caught my eye in today's Reproductive Report from the Kaiser Family Foundation . News reports indicate that the California state assembly has approved a bill that would expand state Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) funding to cover prenatal care. Sounds straightforward enough, but as written, the funds are to cover children "under the age of 19 years, including the period from conception to birth." How that maps onto the abortion controversy is anyone's guess--it's on to Governor Ah-nold now.
