Scott Lloyd's Anti-Abortion Ideology Is Harming the People His Agency Is Supposed to Protect

Brigitte Amiri

In March 2017, President Trump appointed Scott Lloyd to run a federal agency called the Office of Refugee Resettlement. Lloyd has almost no background in helping refugees. Instead, his main qualification for the job is that he spent his legal career furthering his anti-abortion ideology based on his religious beliefs.

Yet another example of precisely the wrong person intentionally being appointed to precisely the wrong job. And once appointed and/or confirmed, they decide that their personal philosophies override existing law and precedents. This administration is totally out of control!

Patriarchy and religious zealotry gone insane. Here we are in the 21st century and goons like Scott are desperately trying to bring us all back into the 9th.

A fetus is not a person yet. When does it gain personhood ? When it is born, however it is born.

Exactly. It should be perfectly clear by now to anyone paying attention, that all of Trump’s appointees were put in place to destroy said agencies. Remember the “drown them in the bathtub” mantra, we’re looking at it. That was a truly treasonous statement, but nary a finger touched ole Grover.

I love it, Brigitte brings a much needed debate to the table. Cheers!!!

While true, these rulings affect a broader range, this doesn’t just apply to elective abortions. :slight_smile:

Grover and his ilk need to be charged with treason and sent to jail forever.

What a fool you are- no room to talk because you cannot dictate what a woman decides to do with her own body/
