After new reports regarding the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Refugee Resettlement, led by Scott Lloyd, NARAL Pro-Choice America is doubling down on our push for Lloyd to be removed from his position and echoes the Congressional Pro-Choice Caucus’ call to fire Lloyd.
“We have known for some time that Scott Lloyd freely abuses his power in the most egregious way: denying those in his care their rights in order to advance his own extreme ideology,” said Kaylie Hanson Long, NARAL Pro-Choice America National Communications Director. “From trying to intimidate young women– including an undocumented rape survivor– in an effort to restrict their constitutional right to abortion care, and reportedly telling organizations they can’t mention abortion to minors in his custody, his insidious attacks on women are relentless. Scott Lloyd must go.”
NARAL Pro-Choice America and its network of state affiliates are dedicated to protecting and expanding reproductive freedom for all Americans. NARAL works to guarantee that every woman has the right to make personal decisions regarding the full range of reproductive choices, including preventing unintended pregnancy, bearing healthy children, and choosing legal abortion. In recognition of its work defending our constitutional right to choose, Fortune Magazine described NARAL as “one of the top 10 advocacy groups in America.”
