Anti-choicer in charge of birth control distribution? Huh.

So I'm sure many of you have heard about President Bush's appointment of Dr. Eric Keroack as the leader of Title X, a governmental Family Planning Program. Keroack has an incredible array of anti-choice and abstinence-only credentials, but has been placed in charge of the $283 million dollar program specifically designed to provide access to contraception, especially to those who can not afford it. This appointment doesn't need to be approved by anyone. Here's an editorial with more info:
