Boxer on Lieberman on EC and Women’s Rights

Scott Swenson

In the great tradition of the Senate, you rally 'round your own, no matter what, so here is blogger Connecticut Bob filming the "Boxer Meltdown" as reporters pepper Senator Barbara Boxer (D) about Senator Joe Lieberman's (D) position on emergency contraception, women's rights, and other issues. The video via the bloggers at Firedoglake.

You may recall that Lieberman suggested women who had been raped, and are in need of emergency contraception, should just drive, drive, drive if they can't find emergency contraception because a local individual pharmacist, or a Catholic hospital, is exercising their right of refusal, sometimes known as a conscience clause.
