Dear 5849376,

Stand up for human trafficking survivors

A bipartisan bill meant to help survivors of human trafficking is being hijacked by Republicans who put anti-abortion political grandstanding before women's lives.

The Justice for Victims in Trafficking Act would increase fines collected from people convicted of human trafficking and establish a fund to help survivors. But anti-abortion extremists in the Senate want to keep survivors from using those funds for health care that may include abortions.

Tell Senate Republicans: Stop playing politics and pass a bill to help the survivors of human trafficking. Click here to sign the petition.

Fortunately Democrats in the Senate are pushing back. They're demanding a clean bill from the Senate and refusing to vote on the current version, which would keep survivors of human trafficking from accessing needed reproductive health care.

Last month, Senate Democrats won when they stood strong against Republicans who were holding Homeland Security funding hostage in an attempt to gut President Obama's executive order on immigration. Republicans will blink again if we can keep the pressure on.

Let Senate Republicans know they can't get away with partisan politics that hurt women. Click the link below to sign the petition:

The majority of human trafficking victims are women and girls. They need access to the full range of reproductive health care services without additional barriers erected by Republicans in Congress.

Thanks for standing up for them.
