BIG CONGRESSIONAL HEARING COMING UP...SOON
MESSAGE TO ALL but especially if you want to join Operation Outcry: Silent No More in this event (Naaman, here's your chance!):
On Thursday, June 23rd at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time, the Senate Judiciary Committee on the Constitution, chaired by Senator Sam Brownback, will be holding a hearing at 2 p.m. in The Dirksen Office Building, Room No. 226. The topic of the hearing will be to criticize the Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions and call on the Supreme Court to reverse both decisions.(To state leaders, there's a national conference call with an important update on this hearing after the fact, that same evening)
At 2 p.m., the first panel consisting of Sandra Cano and Norma McCorvey will begin to testify. They will each have five minutes to testify from a prepared statement and then they will be asked questions. We will have women who have had an abortion seated on the first row seated behind Norma and Sandra. You will not be able to testify this time; however, you can submit material in writing that will be part of the record within seven days after the meeting. We are going to be including some of the written testimonies that we already have with pictures of the women, with their permission of course.This is not an official Operation Outcry event, but if you can join them in Washington, D.C. please let them know. There may be extensive media coverage and there may be opportunities to speak with the media after the hearing. We would like your presence and your support for Norma and Sandra, but we do not want to put excessive burden on any of you to attend.
PS: No signs are allowed in the Committee room.
