Who is Diane Foley?
Diane Foley has a long history of opposing sex education and access to abortion. She oversees Title X, the nation’s program that ensures every person has access to affordable birth control and reproductive care. Foley has final say on which health care providers — including Planned Parenthood — get funding through Title X.
Before joining the Trump administration, Foley was president and CEO of Life Network — an anti-abortion group sponsored by Focus on the Family, an anti-LGBTQ hate group.Rewire News
At Life Network, Foley helped run fake women's health centers, which use false and inaccurate information to discourage people from having safe, legal abortions.Color Lines

Foley used the myth of so-called "post-abortion syndrome" to argue that abortion causes mental health problems. But this supposed syndrome has no scientific basis nor is it recognized by the American Psychiatric Association. In fact, people are over 99 percent likely to say that their decision to have an abortion was the right choice.Vice
