Contraception Contradiction

The Bush Regime just does not give up its Faith Based, read fundamentalist Christian, politics. Here is a guy who opposes contraception in charge of giving out contraception. This will be as successful as the Bush regimes abstience program around AIDS in the developing world.

Birth Control Opponent Appointed to Chief of Federal Family Planning Department

Anti-choice, anti-birth control advocate Eric Keroack was appointed chief of family-planning programs at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) by President Bush yesterday. Dr. Keroack will be in charge of overseeing the distribution of
Title X funding, which amounts to $283 million in grants per year, that is "designed to provide access to contraceptive supplies and information to all who want and need them with priority given to low-income persons," according to HHS, the Washington Post reports. Dr. Keroack himself is opposed to contraceptives; the group of "crisis pregnancy centers" (CPCs) of which Keoack is the medical director states on its website that the "crass commercialization and distribution" of contraception is "demeaning to women, degrading of human sexuality and adverse to human health and happiness," according to the Washington Post. The program Keroack will now head is responsible for supporting 4,600 family planning clinics that help five million people each year.

Of course the right wing praises this guy who is a throw back to the dark ages. To them he is a vigilante advocate opposed to abortion. Of course to the fetus fetishists Contraception=abortion. You will never find real libertarian conservatives supporting these theocrats.
