Quote of the Day: Senator Frank Lautenberg
Our quote of the day comes from New Jersey Senator Frank Lautenberg, who delievered a moving floor statement before the Senate voted today on the Blunt Amendment--which would have given any employer the right to deny health insurance based on a so-called "moral conviction." We're giving him major props!
"When it comes to women, they don’t get rights. They get restrictions… I have five daughters and eight granddaughters, and the one thing I worry about more than anything else is their health. I like to see their happy faces. I like to see them feeling good… So I want them to have doctors making decisions, not some employer who has a self-righteous moral view that he wants to impose on my daughter, my granddaughter, my wife. Nuh uh. On our side of the aisle, we believe that women are capable of making their own healthcare decisions."
