Tell Senate Republicans: Stop holding trafficking survivors hostage to your ideological agenda

Tell Senate Republicans: Stop holding trafficking survivors hostage to your ideological agenda

This is the most cynical, disgusting move yet: Senate conservatives are holding hostage a bill to help human trafficking survivors--the majority of whom are women and girls--to advance their extremist anti-choice and anti-health agenda. This bipartisan bill would increase penalties for those convicted of human slavery, smuggling, and sexual exploitation of victims, and use the money collected to help the survivors. But now Senate extremists won’t let it come to a vote unless it includes provisions to ban survivors' access to abortion care--even in the case of rape, incest, and when a survivor's health is in danger.
