HHS Official Quits

The head of the federal agency responsible for providing women with access to contraceptives and counseling to prevent pregnancy resigned unexpectedly Thursday after Medicaid officials took action against him in Massachusetts.

Just five months ago, Keroack was chosen by President Bush to oversee HHS’ Office of Population Affairs and its $283 million annual budget. The pick angered Planned Parenthood and other abortion rights groups that viewed him as opposed to birth control and comprehensive sex education. Keroack had worked for an organization that opposes contraception.

Dr. Keroack said that his “attorney feels confident that misunderstandings have occurred” and that the “action” will be reversed. Yeah, that’s why he had to quit his job to deal with it, because his attorney his handling the problem.
