Congress Decides Women Cannot Speak for ThemselvesPosted: February 16, 2012
Anyone wondering about the GOP witch hunt going on in DC over birth control? During a hearing on birth control today, GOP representatives discussed the importance of women’s health. Since the GOP feels that women are not able to make decisions about their own bodies and are immensely preoccupied with what a woman does with her vagina and uterus, no women were included in this hearing.
Thankfully House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) offered to educate her conservative colleagues with a comprehensive sexual education program, which of course was rejected because it would not include abstinence. In an article on the Huff Post, Nancy expresses her discontent…
“I think it’s really curiouser and curiouser that as we get further into this debate, the Republican leadership of this Congress thinks it’s appropriate to have a hearing on the subject of women’s health and can purposely exclude women from the panel,” Pelosi said during a press conference. “What else do you need to know about the subject?”
“If you need to know more, tune in, I may, I may at some point be moved to explain biology to my colleagues” Pelosi states.
