BULIMIC GROUP PROTESTS ANTI-WAR PUKERS Christopher K. Leavitt www.leavworld.com 03/30/03
A nationwide coalition of bulimia support groups held a protest today at a private clinic in an undisclosed location against the anti-war protesters who "self-purged" on the steps of the Federal building in San Francisco. "There are better ways to protest the war than by promoting unhealthy psychological conditions" said patient X, who said stress over the first Gulf war led to her condition as a child. "Seeing those people throw up just makes me sick, and that's a problem for me", she said, adding "We don't need to see the use of self-induced vomiting shown in such a positive light as an anti-war protest". When asked if anything Saddam Hussein did ever made her sick or caused her to "self purge", she replied "Who is Saddam Hussein?"
