A Bush admin. official stands up for the truth.

Lets acknowlege the sacrifice that Susan Wood made of her career in resigning her position as director of the FDA's Office of Womens Health. Her resignation letter includes the following quotes: "I can no longer serve as staff when scientific and clinical evidence, fully evaluated and recommended for approval by the professional staff here, has been overruled," snip "The recent decision announced by the Commissioner about emergency contraception, which continues to limit women's access to a product that would reduce unintended pregnancies and reduce abortions, is contrary to my core commitment to improving and advancing women's health."

God bless Ms. Wood for her example and may we only hope that she is recognized as a pioneer against the insidious idealogical reasoning that contravenes science and basic truths in the governing of this administration. Once again, thank you Ms. Wood.

missed that story. there are so few examples of people with backbone in the bush league.
