Republican Senate Candidate McMahon: Catholic Hospitals Should Be Allowed To Deny Emergency Contraception To Rape Victims
Interviewed by the Hartford Courant:
COURANT: So a rape victim, in a hospital. And it’s a hospital that is run by a Catholic institution. Emergency contraception, should that be—should she be sent to another hospital in the middle of the night when she’s in dire distress?
MCMAHON: I don’t think that the government should overreach. 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.
