Bishops don't use birth control


House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) refused to let women testify today at a hearing examining the Obama administration's new regulation requiring employers and insurers to provide contraception coverage to their employees.

Ranking committee member Elijah Cummings (D-MD) had asked Issa to include a female witness at the hearing (see video), but the Chairman refused [and] dismissed the Democrats' woman witness as a 'college student' who does not 'have the appropriate credentials' to testify before his committee." 

Rep. Issa insisted this is a hearing about religious freedom. We believe it's about birth control, and the right to access the health care we need.  Let someone contraception speak!
