A New York Times Editorial Says Keroack was Always ‘A Bad Choice’
The New York Times ran an editorial today about Dr. Eric Keroack’s appointment and recent resignation as Deputy Assistant Secretary for Population Affairs at the Department of Health and Human Services. We were seriously concerned and opposed to Keroack’s November appointment given his history as the Medical Director for a chain of crisis pregnancy health centers that do not distribute, encourage the use of, or offer referrals for contraceptive drugs and devices. The editorial affirms that “Keroack was always a disturbing choice to lead the federal office that finances birth control, pregnancy tests, and other health care services for five million poor Americans.”
Last month Keroack resigned after Medicaid officials took action against his practice in Massachusetts.
