Bush's Homophobic Surgeon General Appointee:

From Human Rights Campaign:
How can we trust Holsinger to be America's top doctor, when his resume looks like this:
  • In 1991 used basic plumbing analogies to write a "scientific and medical" paper arguing that homosexuality is unnatural and dangerous.
  • Founded the Hope Springs Community Church, which reportedly has a special program to "cure" gays from "that lifestyle."
  • Past writings indicate that he views sexual orientation as a "lifestyle choice." This could not be further from the view held by mainstream medical or scientific organizations.
James Holsinger's record seems to demonstrate that he is uninterested in the best scientific information available; instead, he allows his anti-gay bias to inform his medical judgments. What will he do if he's given the title of Surgeon General?

Find out more and tell your Senators to send Holsinger home.
