President Joe Biden announced the appointment of several individuals to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on Tuesday. Ohio State Democratic Rep. Janine Boyd is among the selectees and carries the dubious distinction of having sponsored a bill that seeks to proclaim racism a public health crisis.
She will be the HHS director of Region 5, covering Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin. Subsequently, she has resigned her seat in the state’s legislature, which she has held since 2014.
“Janine R. Boyd is a pediatric speech and language pathologist turned advocate and state legislator. With almost two decades of experience in health and human services advocacy and policy as a government affairs professional, Boyd has been actively involved in Ohio’s state budget process and identifying federal opportunities on behalf of programs that serve the most vulnerable citizens,” the White House said.
In 2020, she captured 87 percent of the vote for House District 9 in the Buckeye State. A summary of the 2021 Ohio House bill (OH HCR6) Boyd sponsored reads simply, “To declare racism a public health crisis and to ask the Governor to establish a working group to promote racial equity in Ohio.”
It further calls for the establishment of a “working group” to “support local, state, regional, and federal initiatives that advance efforts to dismantle systematic racism and mitigate exposure to adverse childhood experiences and trauma; incorporate educational efforts to address and dismantle racism and to expand understanding of racism and how racism affects individual and population health.”
Additionally, the text urges all general assembly members to be “committed to reviewing all portions of the Revised Code with a racial equity lens.”
An exhaustive list of her sponsored legislation includes bills replete with Democrat Party boilerplate such as requiring face masks for House sessions, addressing criminal justice reform, police body cams, bail reform and ballot drop boxes.
In its announcement, the White House naturally lauded her perceived commitment to “the expansion of human rights laws to increase protections for members of the LGBT+ community.”
In 2020, Boyd testified in support of a bill that would make October 11 officially known as “Coming out Day.”
“By designating this day in the Ohio Revised Code it shows that the General Assembly takes the position that coming out is one of the most courageous acts any LGBTQ+ person makes; that courage counters bigotry, ignorance and fear; and it is an integral part of our collective, continued progress towards full equality,” she said in her remarks.
She continued, “There are many decisions, tasks, and daily exchanges that heterosexual individuals take for granted such as holding hand[s] with your partner-a simple expression of love and belonging.”
The Biden regime touted its recent picks for the various HHS positions with the wearisome promise that each will succeed gloriously in advocating for those affected by COVID-19, and of course, addressing climate change.
“These regional appointees will be critical to the President’s efforts to rebuild communities most impacted by the pandemic, the economic recovery, and climate change,” the White House proclaimed, adding that Biden’s personnel choices are consistent with his “commitment to building an administration that looks like America.”
An excerpt from OH HRC, which remains in the introductory phase of the legislative process in Ohio, reads:

WHEREAS, There is clear data that racism negatively impacts the lives of people of color in Ohio; and
WHEREAS, The American Psychological Association says that, because of poverty and discrimination, racial minority children are more likely to experience traumatic events than white children, and that childhood trauma has negative impacts on academic, behavioral, and physical health outcomes; and

WHEREAS, Data collected by the Ohio Department of Health reveal that maternal mortality is two and a half times greater for Black women in Ohio than white women and that Black women are significantly more likely to experience severe maternal morbidity, which includes unexpected outcomes of pregnancy, labor, or delivery that result in significant short- or long- term consequences to a woman’s health; and
WHEREAS, The Urban Institute reports that fifty-six per cent of youth incarcerated in Ohio are Black, despite representing only sixteen per cent of people in Ohio under the age of eighteen; and …” on and on …
