>From my buddies at NARAL:
President Bush's new head of federal family-planning programs believes that birth control is "demeaning" to women.
Late last week, after pledging to bring the country together after his electoral losses, President Bush appointed Eric Keroack to lead the Department of Health and Human Services' family-planning program - which helps more than five million people annually at 4,600 clinics nationwide.
Keroack has dedicated his career to telling women that birth control and abortion are wrong. His M.O.: "the crass commercialization and distribution of birth control is demeaning to women, degrading of human sexuality and adverse to human health and happiness."
Because nothing respects women, human sexuality and health, and happiness more than repeated unplanned pregnancies. Damn, if only there were more unwanted babies in this country, we'd be so fucking happy. That's what we are missing.
