It's worth reminding people just what Blunt's legislation would do, as described by someone extremely well informed: Blunt himself:
“The Respect the Rights of Conscience Act doesn’t mention any medical procedure. It doesn’t mention anything specifically. It treats Christian Scientists like Catholics, and Muslims just like Methodists,” Blunt says. “The principle is you cannot tell people they have to do things that violate their faith beliefs. It’s as simple as that.”

Note that Blunt himself invoked Christian Scientists. Observant Christian Scientists are opposed to medical care. Period. This is a law that as described by its author would literally make health insurance meaningless. And it's one that Willard "Mitt" Romney dare not oppose.

If I'm a doctor, and I'm inspired by my religious convictions to deny someone help because I think they deserve to suffer and/or die, are my beliefs protected by all this religion-pandering hootenanny?

Well, on the bright side he might flip back after we wins the nomination.

It's all bloody-rag waving hiding the true single platform item: Get Rid of the Black Guy.

So access to contraception is going to be an election issue. Wonder why Repubs think that this is a winning issue for them.
