Who is Shannon Royce?

Shannon Royce has spent her career trying to undermine LGBTQ rights and abortion access. She is now the key liaison between the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and religious organizations. As head of the Center for Faith and Opportunity Initiatives, she’s expected to make partnerships between HHS and religious groups that oppose same-sex marriage, abortion, and sexual and reproductive health and rights — groups that will undoubtedly use their connections with Royce to shape federal health care policy.

We have such an amazing team at HHS that is absolutely a pro-life team across the spectrum.
