Right this second, Republican Darrell Issa is (of course!) holding a hearing on President Obama and Secretary Sebelius’ mandate that required all employers — even religious-based organizations running businesses — to provide contraception services for free.

This photo was just taken and posted to Planned Parenthood’s Twitter feed, with the comment, “The @GOPoversight hearing on #birthcontrol. What is wrong with this picture?!” and the hashtag, #wherearethewomen

As you can see, all the people testifying are men.

Disgraceful.

Oh. The hearing is titled, “Lines Crossed: Separation of Church and State. Has the Obama Administration Trampled on Freedom of Religion and Freedom of Conscience?

Yeah, right.
