I cannot remain silent.”
President Trump has thrown another bone to his social conservative base by appointing a stay-at-home mom and anti-transgender activist to the office of Gender Equality, a woman opposed President Obama’s transgender bathroom agenda.
Trump named Bethany Kozma as Senior Adviser in the Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment division under the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). The USAID website explains, “USAID advances sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights across the globe.” It lists “Family Planning,” “Reproductive Health,” and “Post-Abortion Care” as three of its U.S. tax-funded programs worldwide.
Kozma served in the White House and in Homeland Security under President George W. Bush. Bucking feminist pressure groups, she then left her career to devote herself full time to raising her children as a “stay-at-home mom.”
“Because I’m passionate about our country, I dedicated years of my life to government service,” Kozma explained. “Later, that same passion led me to focus on raising my three young children to become the finest citizens they can be, becoming a stay-at-home mom.”
President Obama’s transgender bathroom policy allowing boys into the girls’ restrooms if they felt like it would eventually kick Kozma into high gear. The administration threatened schools with losing federal funds unless they adopted the fascist policy. In protest, Kozma organized a national women’s campaign against it.
