Where are a bunch of dudes debating your reproductive rights today?

You know that old truism that I just made up: At any given moment, somewhere  in the United States, your reproductive rights are being debated by old white men. And right now, it’s in the House of Representatives, where Rep. Franks and these guys are having hearing to discuss his proposed 20-week abortion ban.

 The bill originally would have applied only to DC, but now he’s amended it to expand it to the whole country. One can only hope this waste of Congressional time is because he hasn’t gotten the memo that the courts just officially declared Arizona’s 20-week ban unconstitutional. Some staffer should be fired for dropping the ball on that heads-up.
