Herb Kohl Supportive of Nelon/Stupak Amend?

Normally Kohl is a predictable anti-life vote. But he may be in line to convert. According to Kohl hedged at a Marquette University Law School forum on health care that "“We should not be using health care reform to provide government access to abortion.”

According to follow up by Marquette graduate Dan Zeidler, he was assured that two could work “directly” on a solution to prevent controversial abortion coverage mandates."

Interesting to be sure. Now we know that Kohl voted AGAINST the Nelson amendment when it came for a vote (which is were the real proof of the pudding resides) but this statement shows that with a little more clarity on the topic he could support some life issues.
