President Trump Names Pro-Life Leader to Key HHS Post, Replacing a Planned Parenthood Activist

President Donald Trump has named a pro-life leader to a top post at the Department of Health and Human Services, which often oversees and implements policies related to abortion.

But the good news doesn’t end there, as the new pro-life appointee replaces a staunch abortion advocate who is now a vice president at the Planned Parenthood abortion business.

President Donald Trump on Friday said he would name Charmaine Yoest, the former president of Americans United for Life, one of the most prominent pro-life organizations in the county, to a top communications post at HHS. Yoest would become the assistant secretary of public affairs — a position that shapes communications efforts for the entire agency.
“Yoest is an HHS political appointee but her appointment does not require Senate confirmation. She succeeds Kevin Griffis, who was recently named vice president of communications for Planned Parenthood,” Politico reports.
The appointment continues president Trump’s pro-life record that he started in January with reinstating the Mexico City policy defunding International Planned Parenthood and continued with defunding the pro-abortion UNFPA and signing a bill to allow states to defund Planned Parenthood abortion company.

Yoest, a former vice president at Family Research Council, is well-respected within the pro-life movement. and has frequently spoken out against the Planned Parenthood abortion business.
“Over the last 45 years, Planned Parenthood has become the expert in making money from ending lives,”she has said.
