I wrote last week that President Bush has appointed Dr. Eric Keroack, an abstinence-only misogynist nut as the Deputy Secretary of Health and Human Services in charge of Title X, the federal government’s only funding stream for family planning and reproductive health for low-income women. Today, women’s rights organizations are taking action to oppose Dr. Keroack’s appointment.

Please take a few minutes to visit NARAL’s website to send a letter to the Secretary of Health and Human Services, urging him to reject Keroack’s appointment. You can also send a letter from Planned Parenthood’s website, and take a look at their press release about Keroack’s appointment.

For more on Keroack, check out the Washington Post article about his appointment, or this Alternet article.
