Sen. Roy Blunt, a pro-life Missouri Republican, is putting forward the Blunt Amendment, #1520, to the Transportation Bill. It is termed the Respect for Rights of Conscience Act. The Blunt Amendment will be the first amendment voted on when the Senate returns to the transportation bill. The amendment would allow employers to decline coverage of services in conflict with religious beliefs.
The ACLU, Planned Parenthood and other left wing pro-abortion groups are sending out press releases filled with misinformation about this measure.
