CORRECTION
We reported that President Bush has appointed an advocate of family planning, Dr. Erik Keroack, as the new chief of family planning programs at the DHHS, supervising $283 million in grants "designed to provide access to contraceptive supplies and information to all who want and need them." In fact, Dr. Keroack is an opponent of family planning who regards the distribution of contraceptives as "demeaning to women." We regret any confusion caused by our mistake.
