True to form, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) denounced the Blunt amendment as a ban on contraception. “For millions of women whose boss may have a religious objection, this would amount to a contraception ban,” Schumer said. “[L]et’s admit what this debate is really and what Republicans really want to take away from American women. It is contraception.”
Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) said in response to the Hill: “This debate is not about not about a particular service, group, or set of beliefs – and these blatant attempts to frighten and mislead Americans about this bipartisan bill are simply shameful.” Blunt maintained that his amendment merely restores standard American respect for religious freedom.
