Women's Health

Do we really need this man to be chairman of the Food and Drug Administration's panel on women's health policy:

Although Hager is the editor of a book that includes the essay "Using the Birth Control Pill is Ethically Unacceptable," he told Maureen Dowd of The New York times he does not agree with the essay. Then why include it? He does not prescribe contraceptives for single women, does not do abortions, will not prescribe RU-486 and will not insert IUDs. Hager also believes headaches, PMS and eating disorders can be cured by reading Scripture. I do not want this man in charge of my health policy.

Or even to sit on the panel?

Molly Ivins has more on the topic.
And, an article from CBS news.
Or...read his book.
