Rep. Issa – Women’s participation in the Contraception debate is not needed

Ranking committee member Elijah Cummings (D-MD) had asked Issa to include a female witness at the hearing, but the Chairman refused, arguing that “As the hearing is not about reproductive rights and contraception but instead about the Administration’s actions as they relate to freedom of religion and conscience, he believes that Ms. Fluke is not an appropriate witness.”

Yes! Finally, women do not get to speak out on their own issues. Enough of that, I say.

  1. So, just to clarify, we only need to talk to women about reproduction? Please, please, please … Democrats in Issa’s district and beyond, point this out far, wide, and often. Misogyny should have no place in modern civics.

    ‘Cause, really, what do women know about religious freedom, right? I’m sure that there isn’t a single woman in the country qualified to talk about that.

    Moreover, if his hearing wasn’t going to discuss WHY the policy was being put into place, what did we spend all of those tax dollars for?
