Anti-choice lawmakers' war on contraception has just gone from over the top to over the top-er.

This morning, the U.S. House of Representatives' Committee on Oversight and Government Reform is holding a hearing on President Obama's policy ensuring that all women can get contraceptive coverage without a copay.

The hearing will feature 10 witnesses--eight of whom are men; none of them is testifying in support of contraceptive coverage.

The committee's chairman, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), refused to let a female law-school student testify about the importance of birth control.

I guess women who use birth control just don't know as much about it as men who are against it.

If you think this is ridiculous/outrageous/appalling, let Rep. Issa know: (202) 225-3906 or tweet @DarrellIssa.
