    Is this a joke!? You have a hearing on religious freedom and birth control (in 2012 no less) and there is not one woman on the panel? This is absolutely amazing – in the most @ss backwards, personal freedom intruding kind of way.

    Lets have a hearing about Women’s Health and not invite medical professionals, women, or non religious people. Lets just invite a bunch of old dudes who think their ignorance is better then our facts.

    Nice job America. You stay classy
