Government Removes Women's Health Information

It appears that accurate women's health information on government sites has been quietly disappearing (via feministing.com).

My first reaction was to write a post about my outrage and disappointment at this news. But you know what, never mind that. Why waste time and energy stating the obvious. Instead, I can do something more constructive--post a list of useful sites with women's health information. As it happens, I'm compiling just such a list for my book, so I have a ton of good links:

Professional Medical Associations

American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG)

Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG)

American Medical Women's Association (AMWA)

Association of Reproductive Health Professionals (ARHP)

Faculty of Family Planning & Reproductive Health Care

National Association of Nurse Practitioners in Women's Health (NPWH)

American Academy of Family Physicians

American College of Physicians - Internal Medicine - Doctors for Adults

American Psychiatric Association

American Medical Association Home Page (AMA)

The National Medical Association

Non-Governmental Organizations

Planned Parenthood Federation of America

International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF)

Marie Stopes International

The Alan Guttmacher Institute

National Women's Health Resource Center (NWHRC)

Black Women's Health Imperative

The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation

So, there you have it. Some useful links, and I'll post more soon. If this type of data will no longer be available on government sites, no problem. It will be available here!
