No, Really, They Can Be That Dense

Q: What’s George Bush’s opinion on Roe v. Wade?
A: Bush doesn’t care how you get out of New Orleans.

A delightful pun with a truth behind it.

Bush and his administration don’t care about a lot of things. And one of them is women’s health, not to mention women’s reproductive rights. The brilliant sex education site Scarleteen has blogged all the information on the FDA’s unprecedented decision to institute a “public comment period” before making emergency contraception drug Plan B available over the counter, including the fact that Susan Wood, the director of the FDA’s Office of Women’s Health, resigned over this issue.

Read the article. Write your letter, and let Scarleteen know you did it.

But wait, there’s more. The administration has replaced Ms. Wood with a new Acting Director. And … wait for it …

He’s a veterinarian!


We don’t think any further comment is necessary.
