Beware: abortions cause drug use and alcoholism!

Without fail this conservative administration keeps trying to shove its ideology down others' throats without any scientific basis

Think Progress reports that a government website has changed the literature from some women feeling relieved or happy after an abortion to increasing their drug and alcohol use after an abortion. Obviously there is no right or wrong way for a woman to feel after an abortion, nor is there a general way to feel especially since her hormones are all outta wack, but what the hell.

It's just like the eternity it took for the FDA to approve emergency contraception for over the counter use. There was NOTHING, keeping them from it, everything in science and medicine said it was good to go, but the FDA kept stalling simply because the administration didn't agree with countless numbers of tests and experiments. The FDA is

...responsible for protecting the public health by assuring the safety, efficacy, and security of human and veterinary drugs, biological products, medical devices... and helping the public get the accurate, science-based information they need to use medicines and foods to improve their health.

A former Surgeon General in the Bush administration backs it up:

Yesterday, Richard Carmona told Congress that when he served as Bush’s Surgeon General, he was often muzzled and censored from speaking out on key issues, such as stem cell research and women’s issues. “Anything that doesn’t fit into the political appointees’ ideological, theological, or political agenda is ignored, marginalized, or simply buried,” said Carmona.

Don't speak up on the women! They are to be seen, not heard, and not even heard of!
