Vastly confused.

My sort of cousin Anna is a strange person. She used to be obsessively Christian, and when I told her that I was looking into Wicca she freaked out and told me I was evil. Later she looked into it herself, and asked me for spells she could do. When I told her to study up first before trying ANY spells, she got pissed off and was like, "I'm just looking for something different, I'm not looking for religion, I'm looking for spells!" or whatever. Anyway, I just got an e-mail from her and it seems like she's back to being Christian. But she sent the following e-mail and it's confusing the hell out of me: Is she agreeing with or opposing what the bulk of the e-mail is saying? I totally don't get it. See if you can figure it out:

START E-MAIL


Most of you guys know me because of my INCREDIBLE pro-life arguments. I want to encourage all of you to read the email I have enclosed, and send a message to President Bush letting him know exactly how you feel. It is an OUTRAGE that Christians and unborn Babies are being denied their rights to have GOOD health care. Please, pass the word on to everyone you know! It's not a woman's right to kill an unborn Child! It's murder! I agree with President Bush appointing Dr. W. David Hager to the FDA and hopefully with your help the anti-Christians and Pro-Death people out there will not sway his decision. Pray that God bless George W. Bush with another 4 years in office and that Abortion be banned!

-President Bush has announced his plan to select Dr. W.David
Hager to head up the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA)
Reproductive Health Drugs Advisory Committee. The committee
has not met for more than two years, during which time its
charter lapsed. As a result, the Bush Administration is
tasked with filling all eleven positions with new
members. This position does not require Congressional
approval. The FDA's Reproductive Health Drugs Advisory
Committee makes crucial decisions on matters relating to
drugs used in the practice of obstetrics, gynecology and
related specialties, including hormone therapy,
contraception, treatment for infertility, and medical
alternatives to surgical procedures for sterilization and
pregnancy termination. Dr. Hager is the author of "As Jesus
Cared for Women: Restoring Women Then and Now." The book
blends biblical accounts of Christ healing women with case
studies from Hager's practice. His views of reproductive
health care are far outside the mainstream for
reproductive technology. Dr. Hager is a practicing OB/GYN
who describes himself as "pro-life" and refuses to prescribe
contraceptives to unmarried women. In the book Dr. Hager
wrote with his wife, entitled "Stress and the Woman's Body,"
he suggests that women who suffer from premenstrual syndrome
should seek help from reading the bible and praying. As an
editor and contributing author of "The Reproduction
Revolution: A Christian Appraisal of Sexuality, Reproductive
Technologies and the Family," Dr. Hager appears to have
endorsed the medically inaccurate assertion that the common
birth control pill is an abortifacient.

We are concerned that Dr. Hager's strong religious beliefs
may color his assessment of technologies that are necessary
to protect women's lives or to preserve and promote women's
health. Hager's track record of using religious beliefs to
guide his medical decision-making makes him a dangerous and
inappropriate candidate to serve as chair of this
committee. Critical drug public policy and research must not
be held hostage by anti-abortion politics. Members of this
important panel should be appointed on the basis of science
and medicine, rather than politics and religion. American
women deserve no less.

There is something you can do. Below is a letter to be sent
to the White House, opposing the placement of Hager. Please
copy all the text of this email and paste it into a fresh
email; then sign your name below and SEND THIS TO EVERY
PERSON YOU KNOW WHO IS CONCERNED ABOUT WOMEN'S RIGHTS.



please forward e-mail to

I oppose the appointment of Dr. W. David Hager to the FDA
Reproductive Health Drugs Advisory Committee. Mixing
religion and medicine is unacceptable in a policy-making
position. Using the FDA to promote a political agenda is
inappropriate and seriously threatens women's health.
