On Thursday, a House subcommittee will hold a hearing on a Republican-supported bill to prevent women who are more than 20 weeks pregnant from undergoing abortions in the District. D.C.’s nonvoting congressional delegate, Eleanor Holmes Norton (D), recently asked bill author and subcommittee chairman Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) to testify at the hearing on the bill’s impacts on city residents. Her request, according to a statement released by her office, has been denied.
