Senate Voting on Contraception Amendment Thursday

The Senate will vote on a controversial contraception amendment Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said Tuesday.

The amendment from Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., would exempt employers from covering any health care service they find immoral. Blunt pushed his amendment after a political opposition erupted to an Obama administration decision to require even religiously affiliated employers to offer health insurance that covers contraceptives free of charge. Blunt's amendment is widely expected to fail.

“But the Republican leader and others on the Republican side of the aisle made it very clear the Senate is not going to be able to move forward…unless we vote on contraception and women’s health,” Reid said on the floor.
