US Senate rejects Republican birth control challenge

Senators voted 51-48 to set aside a measure from Republican Roy Blunt that would have exempted religiously affiliated institutions including Roman Catholic hospitals, universities and charities from a health care reform provision requiring free insurance coverage for women's birth control drugs and devices.
