U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) issued the following statement in response to the ongoing efforts to mislead Americans about the "Respect for Rights of Conscience Act" today:
In reporting on these divisive and appalling attempts to deceive and scare Americans in advance of today’s vote, please consider the following response:
“These blatant attempts to frighten and mislead Americans about this bipartisan provision are simply shameful. This bill includes the same conscience protection language that has been part of our law for almost 40 years, and it simply preserves and protects the fundamental religious freedom that Americans have enjoyed for more than 220 years. Any attempts to argue otherwise are simply aimed at scaring Americans.” – U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.)
