Science: December 16, 2017

Dear Mr. VP,

I am sitting in a Blue State Coffee to write this. Just an FYI.

Last week Jerusalem, this week a list of words the CDC isn’t supposed to use.

Yes, I see you everywhere I turn.

The people who try to keep us all from dying from deadly diseases can’t say their work is evidence-based? Or science-based? They can’t use the work fetus? They’re supposed to write a whole swath of people out of existence?

Forgive me for putting on my tinfoil hat, but this is terrifying. This is like the beginnings of Gilead, or Oceania. We’ve always been at war with Eastasia.

We have a Vice President who doesn’t think smoking kills people, so are any of us surprised we can’t talk about science?

Neil, we need you now more than ever. Please.

I’d like my disease prevention to continue to be science- and evidence-based, PLEASE. Transgender people are real. The thing in my uterus was a fetus.
