"Contraception, abortion foe to head family-planning office."

"The Bush administration, to the consternation of its critics, has picked the medical director of an organization that opposes premarital sex, contraception and abortion to lead the office that oversees federally funded teen pregnancy, family planning and abstinence programs.

"The appointment of Eric Keroack, a Marblehead, Massachusetts, obstetrician and gynecologist, to oversee the federal Office of Population Affairs and its $283 million annual budget has angered family-planning advocates." (CNN)

Restated: Keroack is head of an organization that opposes contraception, and he's now head of the federal office that oversees teen pregnancy and family planning programs. I don't think it's possible to overstate how proactively irresponsible this is.
