A group of senators is twisting a bipartisan bill meant to protect survivors of human trafficking to push their anti-abortion agenda. It's a deeply disturbing political ploy, and we have just hours to stop it — the vote is coming soon.
Senators Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and John Cornyn (R-TX) have taken a bill to expand protections for survivors of human trafficking, and inserted language to deny women access to safe, legal abortion. Survivors deserve care — not political attacks. Tell the Senate to stop this outrageous political stunt and reject any version of the bill restricting access to safe and legal abortion.
Don't use human trafficking survivors to push abortion restrictions
Dear Decision Makers,
I am deeply disturbed by the latest attempt to restrict access to safe and legal abortion. Using a bipartisan bill meant to protect survivors of human trafficking as a weapon to push an anti-abortion agenda shows just how out of touch some politicians can be. You must stop this disgraceful political attack. Expanding protections for survivors of human trafficking should be a bipartisan effort -- and it was, before this bill was hijacked to serve the ideology of a group of senators. The majority of human trafficking survivors are women and girls, and they need access to the full range of reproductive health care services without barriers. These survivors deserve care -- not political attacks.
