Gaffes come so fast and furious from Democratic Senate candidate Martha Coakley that it's hard even to keep up.
Over at Big Government, Jim Hoft picked up yesterday on an interview that Coakley gave WBSM radio. The interview touched on health care and rules protecting freedom of conscience for health care providers who do not want to take part in abortions or in dispensing post-coital contraceptives believed to act as abortifacients. Scott Brown, Coakley's Republican opponent in Tuesday's special Senate election, has supported such conscience rules in the Massachusetts legislature.
Ken Pittman: Right, if you are a Catholic, and believe what the Pope teaches that any form of birth control is a sin. ah you don’t want to do that.
Martha Coakley: No we have a seperation of church and state Ken, lets be clear.
Ken Pittman: In the emergency room you still have your religious freedom.
Martha Coakley: (……uh, eh…um..) The law says that people are allowed to have that. You can have religious freedom but you probably shouldn’t work in the emergency room.
