  • Pro-life advocates are concerned over the nomination of Samantha Power to head a critical US international aid agency.
  • Earlier this month, President Joe Biden announced his nomination of Power to be administrator of the US Agency for International Development (USAID).
  • In that position, Power would have broad sway to determine which groups would and would not merit US assistance in developing countries.
  • Pro-life leaders are concerned that, given Power"s record in international affairs, she would either direct aid to pro-abortion and pro-LGBT groups in developing countries, or condition US assistance upon groups adopting pro-abortion and pro-LGBT principles.
