The House Oversight Committee will hold a hearing to examine states' efforts to restrict abortion access, Democrats on the committee said Tuesday.
According to the committee, the hearing will also examine possible federal legislative action to "protect and expand abortion rights and access."
"When I was elected Chairwoman of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, I vowed to use my gavel to protect civil rights and civil liberties, including the constitutional right to abortion," Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., said.
Witnesses at the Oversight Committee hearing include Dr. Ghazaleh Moayedi, a Texas-based OB-GYN, and Maleeha Aziz, a community organizer at the Texas Equal Access Fund.
Rep. Cori Bush of Missouri, Rep. Barbara Lee of California, Rep. Pramila Jayapal of Washington, and Rep. Judy Chu of California will also testify.
