A Woman’s Concern like many other anti-abortion groups was also morally opposed to birth control of all kinds except celibacy or the “rhythm method” which is not particularly effective. He was a strong opponent of teaching about birth control by means other than pre-marital celibacy, which has been shown not to work for the majority of teens, He was appointed by the George W. Bush administration after vigorous lobbying by some of the extreme right wing religious groups who wanted birth control such as pills, IUDs or condoms to be made illegal. These proposals did not get much public support as the vast majority of Americans including a majority of Catholics use birth control methods that this man would criminalize. His claims about the negative effects of birth control had no scientific bases whatsoever. As a physician, he himself had been warned by the Medical Association for the improper practice of medicine. He had to resign his government position.
