“I don’t think that the government should overreach,” McMahon said when asked if a Catholic-run hospital should be required to provide emergency contraception access to a rape victim who arrives “in the middle of the night.”Just to be clear here, this isn't even about abortion. This is about contraception, and McMahon's against it, even though she continues to try to tell liberal Connecticut voters that she's pro-choice. McMahon also, of course, supports the Blunt amendment that would allow employers to deny employees health insurance coverage for family planning. There's nothing pro-choice about telling women they can't have necessary health care.
“I mean it’s a separation of church and state in my view, and I think that a religious institution has the right to decide what its policies would be in that, in that case,” she said.
She sounds a lot like Joe Lieberman, the guy she wants to replace who says he's pro-choice, too, but it's okay for a hospital to deny a woman health care because "In Connecticut, it shouldn't take more than a short ride to get to another hospital."
Connecticut women don't need another Lieberman representing them in the Senate.
