Where are the women? That’s what we were all asking about yesterday’s House Oversight Committee hearing where Republicans had the gall to convene a panel on birth control coverage with five men and no women.
It’s absolutely insane.
That’s why I am joining Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi in her call to gather 200,000 signatures on our petition demanding that women have a seat at the table on women’s health care issues. Over 175,000 of you have signed since just last night – will you join the tens of thousands of others who are standing up for women by signing now?
Join the call -- women must have a seat at the table when discussing women's issues. Sign the petition now >>
This is not an isolated incident. Yesterday, one of Rick Santorum’s top supporters actually said this:
“Back in my day, they used Bayer Aspirin for contraceptives. The gals put it between their knees and it wasn't that costly.”
This disgusting comment is just another reminder of why women must be a part of the conversation about our own health care.
We want to send a clear message to Speaker Boehner, Eric Cantor, Chairman Issa and to all House Republicans that we won’t stand for this before they leave the Capitol this weekend.
Sign the petition:
Thank you for standing up for what’s right. Together we will win in November and stop the Republicans’ War on Women.
