The contraception debate is still splashed across front pages all over the country.
Now — CNN reports — Democrats are cashing in.
“At this Democratic event on contraception, a lone female witness. Choreographed to contrast this Republican hearing last week—a witness table of all men.”
Thursday’s unofficial hearing—organized by Democratic House leaders—came after House GOP members were criticized after a hearing whose first panel excluded women last week. The Hill has the details.
“Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi... organized the hearing after an Oversight Committee panel last week did not include any female witnesses who support the White House’s order requiring employers and insurance companies to cover birth control.”
Actually — the hearing’s second panel included women — but opponents focused attention on the first panel. As for the Dem’s event — it featured one woman—Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke—the same woman barred from last week’s GOP hearing. According to Newsmax...
“This week she received almost rock-star treatment as ... Nancy Pelosi, three other Democrats and dozens of mainly young women supporters crowded into a House office building room to applaud Fluke as she spoke of the importance of reproductive health care to women.”
But Republican leaders say Dems are missing the point of the original hearing. Government Reform and Oversight Chair Republican Darrell Issa tells Fox’s Greta VanSusteren—the meeting was about religion, not contraception. In reference to Fluke, he says...
“It was one of those things where her story was compelling, but it wasn’t in anyway related to the stated point of the hearing.”
But as contraception continues to be a talking point — some in the media say—both parties look ridiculous. According to an op-ed writer for the Columbus Dispatch...
“It’s simply unbelievable that birth control could be a real issue in American politics at this stage of our development and in the face of the world’s crushing needs.”
According to the Wall Street Journal, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has gathered 434,000 signatures demanding women be allowed to participate in the contraception debate.
