“Imagine having a panel on women’s health and they don’t have any women on the panel,” she told reporters Thursday. “Duh.”
But no worries! Later in the day, at a second panel—we might think of it as a junior varsity panel—Republicans are letting two women testify. One is senior vice president for academic affairs at Oklahoma Christian University and the other is medical director at Calvin College health services. I'm sure they'll offer real diversity of opinion and really expand on things said by two representatives of Christian colleges on the morning's varsity panel and the three other representatives of Christian colleges on the afternoon JV panel.
If Republicans keep denying that women's health is at issue in the question of whether employers should be able to exclude birth control from women's health coverage, Pelosi is willing to step in:
“What else do you need to know about the subject?” she said. “If you need to know more, tune in. I may, I may at some point be moved to explain biology to my colleagues.”Maybe she could get some of those neat charts members of Congress are always using.
