Pic of the Day: Where are the Women?
The above picture is from the House Committe on Oversight and Government Reform's hearing on women's health. Here's what Planned Parenthood Federation of America President Cecile Richards had to say about it:
"In the latest example how out of touch House Republican leaders are on women’s health, Congressman Darrell Issa (R-CA) is holding a congressional hearing to oppose insurance coverage for contraception, yet not allowing a single woman to testify in support of the benefit. In fact, Congressman Issa rejected the opportunity to allow a woman attending Georgetown University’s law school to testify about the positive impact the birth control benefit would have on women."
"Where are the women? How can Congress hold a hearing about birth control and not let any women speak?"
