Pelosi Names Democratic Members to Republicans’ Select Committee to Attack Women’s Health


Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi today announced she will appoint the following six Democratic Members of Congress to serve on Republicans’ latest radical Select Committee.  Pelosi also announced that Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky of Illinois will serve as Ranking Member.

“I am proud to name six strong champions of women, families and facts to stand up against the latest Republican assault on women’s health,” Leader Pelosi said.  “Hard-working families deserve better than a taxpayer-funded Republican Select Committee fixated on dismantling women’s health.  As Republicans try to take affordable family planning and lifesaving preventive care away from millions of American women, Democrats will be in the room to fight for the truth.”

Each of the Members to be appointed has served on one of the three committees with jurisdiction over women’s health issues: Energy & Commerce, Judiciary and Oversight & Government Reform.

The following Democratic Members will serve on the Select Committee to Attack Women’s Health:

  • Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky of Illinois
  • Congressman Jerrold Nadler of New York
  • Congresswoman Diana DeGette of Colorado
  • Congresswoman Jackie Speier of California
  • Congresswoman Suzan DelBene of Washington
  • Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman of New Jersey
