Hatch: Contraception Coverage Is ‘An Affront To The Natural Rights To Life’

Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) conflates contraception with abortion in this press release denouncing the Obama administration’s decision to require insurers to provide coverage for contraception and other reproductive services without cost sharing. “If adopted by you, the IOM recommended benefits would force individuals to bear costs associated with drugs that violate their religious and philosophical commitments,” he writes, since that’s the only way he can turn a service that most insurers cover and the majority of women rely on into a controversy.
