Surgeon General's warning: Anti-choice president is hazardous to your health

It's not always easy for parents to talk to their kids about sex.
It's even harder when they've been misinformed.

President Bush and the Department of Health and Human Services isn't about to lend a helping hand, either. Recently the Bush administration added politically biased and misleading anti-choice claims to a website called . The site now includes the following statement: "Abortions can have complications. There may be emotional consequences, as well: some women say they feel sad and some use more alcohol or drugs than before."

This is no surprise coming from the same administration that was forced to remove medically inaccurate claims linking abortion to breast cancer from the National Institute of Health's website. and whose former Surgeon General Richard Carmona told Congress that, "Anything that doesn't fit into the political appointees' ideological, theological or political agenda is ignored, marginalized or simply buried."

Please don't let this attack on sound science go unanswered. It's time to stop this administration from spreading medical falsehoods and endangering the health of Americans. It's time to call on the Bush administration to provide objective, factual information.
