Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., will soon decide whether or not to resign after three women have alleged that he sexually harassed them, his attorney said Friday.

"We will discuss in the next day or so what Mr. Conyers plans to do. As you know his health is not the best, is not what it should be, he has undergone a second round of examinations. I will meet and confer with doctors and it will be congressman John Conyers who will be the one to decide what it is he's going to do," said Arnold Reed, Conyers' attorney, according to Politico.

Conyers has been hospitalized for a stress-related illness, his family announced Thursday.

Conyers is the longest serving member of the House of Representatives. He has denied the allegations. While Conyers did step down from his position as ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, his lawyer Arnold Reed said Thursday that Conyers would not resign, despite calls from Nancy Pelosi and others for him to step down.

"Nancy Pelosi did not elect the congressman, and she sure as hell won't be the one to tell the congressman to leave," said Reed on Thursday, according to CBS News.

On Sunday, Conyers tweeted that he was grateful to colleagues who have called for "due process before weighing judgment."
