Time for Men to Speak Up for Women’s Reproductive Rights

Huffington Post: Where Are the Men?, by Robert Walker:

There was no shortage of men when a U.S. House oversight committee last week pulled together a panel of "expert" witnesses to testify against requiring health insurers to cover contraceptives for women who work for religiously-affiliated organizations. The majority on the committee called 11 witnesses. They were all men. That's why women on the committee walked out in protest. . . .
