Tell the GOP women deserve to have their voices heard!

The GOP is at it again - making decisions about women's health and denying women a chance to testify.

The House Subcommittee on the Constitution (which is made up of all men) is considering a bill that would ban abortions in DC after 20 weeks. Eleanor Holmes Norton, the District's Delegate, was denied an opportunity to testify by the subcommittee's Chair, Rep. Trent Franks. Again, a woman - and the district's Congressional delegate - is being denied an opportunity to speak.

The GOP’s priorities are all wrong – attacking women’s rights instead of focusing on the economy, jobs and education.
