Perhaps you've received the email about President Bush's plan to select Dr. W. David Hager to the FDA's Reproductive Health Drugs Advisory Committee. The email is scary; it's about how Hager's this total prolife Jesusfreak fundamentalist (true) who doesn't prescribe birthcontrol to unmarried women (true -- Time confirmed it) and who wants to revoke RU-486's prescription status. All of this SUCKS. But, ladies, please -- this email is OLD.
Dr. Hager was appointed to the committee in December 2002. In fact, he was just re-appointed this past June. He's ON THE FUCKING COMMITTEE already, people. Yes, it really fucking sucks. But sending on that email -- forwarding a petititon to the whitehouse asking Bush not to appoint Hager -- just makes us look stupid.
Check your facts, yo. I highly recommend snopes for all your urban-legend fact-checking needs.
