What’s best for the women

March 23, 2017

We know what’s best for the women, the Congressman said.

We know what they don’t need, said another.

It was a day when aides brought water in clear glasses and briefing documents, and the world changed, slowly, after much discussion. But on this day, they talked about mammograms, births, deaths.

How are we going to make sure what we’re planning is enough if we haven’t talked to the women involved? asked the second Congressman.

One thought of his mother. Another of his sister. Another, his wife.

Well, said the first Congressman, they’d back us. They know we’re right.
