Woke Sec of Def Lloyd Austin vows to protect US troops from SCOTUS abortion ruling

In a move that raised eyebrows, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin personally weighed in on the historic Supreme Court decision overturning the decades-old Roe v. Wade abortion ruling.

In a statement posted to the Defense Department’s website, Austin said the Pentagon is working to “ensure” that employees will have access to “reproductive healthcare as permitted by federal law.”

“Nothing is more important to me or to this Department than the health and well-being of our Service members, the civilian workforce and DOD families,” he said.

“I am committed to taking care of our people and ensuring the readiness and resilience of our Force. The Department is examining this decision closely and evaluating our policies to ensure we continue to provide seamless access to reproductive health care as permitted by federal law,” the statement read.

No sooner had it been posted than Austin came under fire for personally weighing in.

“Abortion has absolutely nothing to do with troop readiness,” one Twitter user pointed out.

Many others agreed.


Other Twitter users zeroed in on the Secretary of Defense’s use of the term “federal law.”
