CHIPs for Cletus the Fetus- The HHS department sent abortion fans into low-earth orbit by declaring unborn children eligible for coverage under the more-generous CHIPs children's Medicaid program. This will allow states to give more "working-poor" pregnant mothers coverage without a mommy-may-I waiver from Washington. The abortion rights crowd doesn't like the move, looking at it as a move towards protecting the unborn and further discouraging abortion. The headline was borrowed from a comic strip in the CMU school newspaper in the early 80's, The Wacky Adventures of Cletus the Fetus, whose mom took one mind-altering drug too many, making Cletus self-aware and traveling the Astral Plane while in utero.
