Feministing has a rather alarming little news flash to share with all of you bloggettes out there:
According to Jessica at Feministing, it seems Bush has appointed an abstinence-only nut to oversee reproductive rights funding.
"The Bush administration has hired Dr. Eric Keroack to oversee Title X funding—the only federal program devoted entirely to family planning and reproductive health.
Keroack, who is currently the medical director of a Massachusetts pregnancy crisis center (you know, the folks that Lie to Women), will be the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Population Affairs.
Keroack is not only a well-known anti-choicer, he’s also a major proponent of abstinence-only education…and when I say proponent, I mean fucking insane person."
