Who is Nikki Haley?

Nikki Haley announced her departure from the Trump administration just before the 2018 midterm elections. During her two years as UN ambassador, Haley oversaw many efforts to restrict reproductive choices for women and girls worldwide. Before being appointed by Trump, she had no formal foreign policy experience and a long track record of blocking women’s access to health care.

I am strongly pro-life, so anything we can do to keep [women] from having abortions, or to keep them from ...knowing what is available, I will support.”
