Connecticut and Bush's New Rule

A Hartford Courant editorial reported that the Bush Administration cited a Connecticut law when proposing its new "Conscience Rule". The 2007 Connecticut law "requires hospitals to offer emergency contraception to rape victims." The Bush Administration opposes this law, as shown by the new rule released last december. The Courant pointed out one exception in the CT law that the administration failed to mention: "the law gives hospitals that object to it an out: they can use independent providers to administer contraception."
