Every person has a right to basic health care, including safe abortion, regardless of their immigration status. Period, full stop.
But Office of Refugee Resettlement Director Scott Lloyd thinks his regressive opinions about abortion trump the constitutional rights of women. Over and over again, he's tried to stop young immigrant women from accessing the abortion care they need. He's even reportedly considered having a woman injected with drugs against her will to stop a medication abortion — an experimental "abortion reversal" procedure that is NOT recognized by the respected medical community. (Really.)
Scott Lloyd and other Trump-Pence administration officials are willing to put women's health, lives, and rights at risk to further their own extreme agendas. Scott Lloyd may think that as undocumented immigrants, these women are not entitled to basic rights or control over their own bodies, but these women deserve support and justice.
This is unconstitutional and unacceptable. It's time for Scott Lloyd to go. Add your name to tell Scott Lloyd's new boss, Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar, to fire him immediately.

Scott Lloyd Must Go
Dear HHS Secretary Alex Azar,
Every person has a right to basic health care, including safe abortion, regardless of her age or immigration status.Office of Refugee Resettlement Director Scott Lloyd is just one of numerous examples of why Trump's extreme, anti-women, anti-abortion, and anti-immigrant appointees are so dangerous. His attempts to keep women from accessing abortion have been stopped by the courts -- but with thousands of young immigrant women under his care as ORR director, there is no doubt his dangerous, outrageous attempts to control their bodies and choices will continue. His obsession with controlling women's bodies is unconstitutional and unacceptable. Scott Lloyd's extreme agenda does not belong in the Office of Refugee Resettlement.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
