To: The Trump Administration
Tell Trump: Not 1 More Jane Doe!
Stop blocking immigrant and refugee women’s access to safe abortions. Policies that deny reproductive care are a danger to immigrant and refugee women’s health and safety.
Why is this important?
Earlier this month, Jane Doe, a 17 year old refugee risked her life and crossed the border alone seeking refuge in the United States. When she arrived, immigration officials detained her against her will. She soon found out she was pregnant and decided to seek an abortion.
The Trump administration stepped in, using every tool at their disposal to force Jane to maintain an unwanted pregnancy. They subjected her to coercive religious counseling and an invasive sonogram.
A federal appeals court overturned the administration’s attempts to block her access, but the fight for reproductive freedom for women like Jane is not over. Her case is part of a pattern and policy of denying abortion care to refugee and immigrant women and girls.
The man trying to control Jane’s body and her future is a well-known anti-contraception and anti-abortion activist, E. Scott Lloyd, who now oversees Trump’s Office of Refugee Resettlement. With no relevant experience, Lloyd is still in office and has the power to decide the fate of thousands of refugee women like Jane.
We can’t let men like Lloyd control our bodies. We know they won't stop at Jane. Add your name to demand access to reproductive health care for all immigrant and refugee women.
