The Woman Rep. Issa Didn't Want You to Hear From
Kristin Koch is the deputy director of communications for online advocacy strategies for NARAL Pro-Choice America.
The picture says it all:
Yesterday's congressional hearing on contraception, where not one woman was allowed to talk about the importance of birth control, sparked outrage. And eight of the ten anti-choice witnesses were men.
Who is the woman the committee's chairman, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), refused to let testify?
Let us introduce you to Sandra Fluke, who recorded this video:
It's, in a word, amazing. It shows pure courage to stand up for what's right and a determination to not allow members of Congress to bully or intimidate women.
Anti-contraception members of Congress didn't silence Sandra Fluke - don't let them silence you. We expect the U.S. Senate to vote on the Blunt amendment when they return from their recess next week. Help us stop this extreme attack on women's contraceptive coverage.
