The House Oversight and Reform Committee held a hearing on abortion laws. In the first panel, Representatives Cori Bush (D-MO), Barbara Lee (D-CA) and Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) spoke in favor of “pro-choice” legislation and shared personal stories of their own abortions. Representative Kat Cammack (R-FL), speaking in support of the “pro-life” movement, said she would not be here today if her mother had had an abortion because of a previous medical condition that put the pregnancy at high risk. Women’s rights activist and author Gloria Steinem; reproductive rights experts and advocates; and “pro-choice” and “pro-life” medical professionals testified in the second panel. Among the topics discussed were the Texas abortion ban law and other restrictive laws, lack of health care access for minority and low-income communities, abortion procedures, the viability of a fetus, and bringing equity to the health care system. close
