ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan says the Obama administration’s requirement that employers, including Catholic ones, be required to offer contraception coverage is an “assault on religious liberty.”

Ryan promised at a town hall meeting in Orlando that GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney would reverse the birth control mandate on “Day 1″ if he’s elected president. The mandate requiring all insurance plans to include access to contraception is part of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul.

Ryan’s comments came in a response to a woman’s question about whether he would ask Vice President Joe Biden in a debate how he reconciles his views as a Roman Catholic with the Democratic Party platform.

Ryan and Biden are both Catholics.
