A male veterinarian was recently appointed by Lester Crawford, acting director of the FDA, to oversee the Office of Women’s Health. Norris E. Alderson is an expert of animal science. A few hours later, the announcement was quietly revoked and Theresa Toigo was named the new acting director of Women’s Health.
The idea of a male veterinarian running the Office of Women’s Health seems both painfully absurd and sickly funny – an Onion headline. Fighting for positions of power, jockeying for privilege, destroying hard fought gains for ill-gotten compromise, the power nodules are eating themselves. Hillary Clinton actually believed that Lester Crawford would approve over the counter emergency contraception?
