Google-ChromeScreenSnapz429After the recent Hobby Lobby victory, the Senate met to determine whether to deny contraception coverage to employees of other companies.

Moments after Senators defeated the so-called Blunt Amendment, Rep. Tim Murphy (R-PA) accused Sebelius of lying about the administration’s rule to provide “abortifacient” drugs – his statements are downright shocking;

SEBELIUS: There also is no abortifacient drug that is part of the FDA approved contraception. What the rule for preventive care…
MURPHY: Ma’m that is not true…Is the morning after pill or something like that an abortifacient drug?
SEBELIUS: It is a contraceptive drug, not an abortifacient… It does not interfere with a pregnancy. If the morning pill were taken, and a female were pregnant, the pregnancy is not interrupted. That’s the definition of abortifation.
MURPHY: Ma’m that is your interpretation, and I appreciate that’s your interpretation.
SEBELIUS: That’s what the scientists and doctors…
MURPHY: We’re not talking about scientists. Ma’m we’re not talking about scientists here, we’re talking about religious belief. Ma’m, I’m asking you about a religious belief. In a religious belief, that is a violation of a religious belief.

When Sebelius went on to explain that the administration’s contraception rule “upholds religious liberty” by exempting houses of worship, religious nonprofits that primarily serve people of the same faith, and even religiously-affiliated hospitals and colleges from providing birth control, Murphy exclaimed, “Ma’m, ma’m, NO! NO! You’re Wrong!” “You’re setting up a rule that not even Jesus and his apostles could adhere too.”

I am a recent graduate with a degree in Liberal Arts which has left me living in my Aunt's attic and playing with dogs for a living. I spend my time writing, editing, reading, and kickboxing when I am not being bowled over by dogs, or learning how to put up sheet rock and putty walls for renovating bathrooms. I hope to support myself doing anything and everything while pursuing my interests as a writer and using all of my life's mishaps for the entertainment of others.
