Immigrant teen's advocates: US pushing anti-abortion agenda
October 13, 2017
HOUSTON (AP) — Shortly after taking over the U.S. government office that oversees facilities for unaccompanied immigrant children, Scott Lloyd told a subordinate what to do with a teenager who wanted an abortion.
Facilities under HHS "should not be supporting abortion services pre or post-release," but rather "life-affirming options counseling," Lloyd wrote in an email. And the person seeking an abortion "should not be meeting with an attorney regarding her termination" or seeking a waiver exempting her from a state requirement that minors get a parent's consent, he wrote in another.
