At Wednesday’s debate Republican candidate Gabriel Gomez gave some indication of how he would vote on reproductive health policy, a topic that he has been reluctant to discuss in detail on the campaign trail.
The Republican Massachusetts Senate candidate has a track record of being somewhat ambiguous about the extent of his anti-choice beliefs.
The state legislature passed it. The governor vetoed it. The legislature overrode it. Now, one labor group steps in to sue the state’s contraceptive coverage refusal law from going into effect.
Both the House and the Senate voted overwhelmingly that employers and insurers should have the right to deny women contraceptive coverage in their insurance plans.
Although Governor Nixon vetoed the state’s bill to allow employers to deny birth control coverage, the legislature is certain that they can override his veto tomorrow.
Is this the House’s answer to the Senate’s Blunt Amendment?
The senate may not have been able to pass a bill allowing employers to decide what health insurance can or can’t cover, but the Missouri legislature may do it themselves.
The university declares that making their insurance cover birth control violates their religious freedom.
Just in under the bell, any employer in Missouri can refuse to cover brth control on the company health insurance plan.
More anti-choice sneak attacks in the New Hampshire legislature, as House members tack unpopular bills onto popular legislation.
