Vote "No" on Religious Refusal Bill
The issue of “religious freedom” continues to be fought out on the national stage—but now New Hampshire state legislators are aiming to attack employees’ individual freedoms at the state level.
Wednesday, the New Hampshire Republican-controlled House voted to allow employers with religious objections to exclude contraceptive coverage from their health plans.
This bill comes on the heels of the Blunt Amendment, a failed attempt to pass similar legislation in the U.S. Senate last week. The Blunt amendment would have allowed employers to exclude any insurance benefit they deem immoral or “contrary to their religious beliefs.”
The New Hampshire House voted 196-150 to send the bill to the state’s Republican-controlled Senate, where it will be up for vote soon.
