ACLU's Laura Murphy on the "Today" Show Tuesday Morning

By Alicia Gay, ACLU at 6:02pm

Tomorrow morning Laura Murphy, Director of our Washington Legislative Office, will appear on NBC’s “Today” to discuss the recent controversy surrounding the Obama administration’s announcement that it would keep in place a proposed rule that ensures that new insurance plans include coverage of contraception.

The powerful lobbying arm of the Catholic Church, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, has repeatedly made claims to the press and their constituents that the rule violates their religious liberty. During her appearance, Murphy will make it clear that religious liberty is not at risk. What is at stake is the guarantee that everyone is treated fairly and can live their lives free from discrimination.
