Who is March Bell?

March Bell is a former Justice Department attorney and anti-abortion activist. He now works under Roger Severino, who is in charge of preventing discrimination in federal health care programs. But instead of focusing on ensuring equal access to health care, Bell and Severino are using the Office of Civil Rights to let providers cite personal objections to deny patients care.
