Kerry Pushes For Contraception Compromise

February 9, 2012 10:02 a.m.

Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) says he hopes the Obama administration will find a compromise in the current controversy over the contraception mandate. 

In a statement, Kerry said, “I think the Administration is working towards a final rule that reflects a reasonable compromise. I think there’s a way to protect everybody’s interest here. I think you can implement it effectively in a way that protects women’s access, but at the same time protects people’s religious beliefs, and that should be everyone’s goal.”

As TPM reported earlier today, there is already a burgeoning group of Democrats who have countered the administration on the increasingly controversial issue.
