INJECTING MORALS INTO WOMEN’S WOMBS
The revision still isn’t good enough for some organizations, including the Catholic Church, who has announced plans to oppose the new policy. U.S. Senators Mark Rubio (FL) and Joe Manchin (WV) have also drafted legislation to repeal the mandate, while Senator Roy Blunt (MO) has introduced an amendment – to a TRANSPORTATION bill of all things – that would allow employers and insurers to exclude specific health care if they morally object to it. We’re sure glad your morals are making decisions about our bodies, Roy. It’s also worth noting that men are leading this attack on contraception.
SEN LAMPING’S CONTRACEPTIVE BILL IN MISSOURI SENATE
A Missouri Senate committee this week passed a bill that would allow employers to bypass, for religious reasons, insurance coverage for birth control, abortions and sterilizations. SB749, sponsored by state Sen. John Lamping, R-St. Louis County, WHO WAS FORMERLY KNOWN AS BEING A MODERATE, was filed in response to a recent federal mandate that church-run organizations provide birth control coverage for employees. That mandate has since been amended to require insurance companies to provide the coverage if the religious organization refuses. The state bill now goes to the full Missouri Senate for consideration.
