I'm impressed that Dr. Richard Carmona actually came out and said what everyone in Wsshington knew was going on -- that even doctors couldn't provide accurate and true information to the pubilc if it interfered with the Bush Administration's political agenda. The details are pretty stunning:
Carmona said he also ran afoul of politics on teen pregnancy prevention. Although the administration emphasizes abstinence from sexual relations, Carmona said he believed a variety of approaches was needed, including contraception for teens who are sexually active.
The administration "did not want to hear the science … but wanted to preach abstinence, which I felt was scientifically incorrect," Carmona testified.
On the issue of stem cell research, Carmona said he found much of the discussion within the government "devoid of science."
When will it end?
