Sen. Tim Kaine on Hobby Lobby filibuster

kaine new2U.S. Senator Tim Kaine released the following statement today after a minority of Senators blocked the Senate from considering the Protect Women’s Health from Corporate Interference Act  or, the “Not My Boss’s Business Act,” legislation that would reverse the Supreme Court’s Burwell v. Hobby Lobby decision that denies women access to critical health care services:

“It’s extremely disappointing that a minority of Senators kept us from being able to consider legislation today that would protect women’s right to health care, including contraception, from interference by their employers – interference deemed fair game by the Supreme Court ‘s decision in the Hobby Lobby case. Contraception is an important preventive health service, not only for women, but also for our society. I do not believe the Court should be in the business of singling out one sincerely held religious belief over others, or saying employers can deny coverage of certain health services, but not others. That’s why it’s clear this decision was less about religious freedom, and more about a broad-based effort to deny women access to contraception. I will continue to do everything I can to reverse this attack on women’s health care rights.”
