NARAL Pro-Choice America Statement on the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 18, 2015

NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue made this statement in response to continued controversy over the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act:

“Let’s be clear about what is happening in the Senate at the moment: women who have been trafficked for sex—sometimes forced to service up to 13 ‘buyers’ a day—have become a political football in the GOP leadership’s quest to advance their agenda to outright ban abortion. These women have been through enough; getting their lives back on track starts with having control of their health care. We call on the Senate to immediately remove this provision and pass what should be bipartisan and non-controversial legislation to protect victims.”

NARAL Pro-Choice America and its network of state affiliates are dedicated to protecting and expanding reproductive freedom for all Americans. NARAL works to guarantee that every woman has the right to make personal decisions regarding the full range of reproductive choices, including preventing unintended pregnancy, bearing healthy children, and choosing legal abortion. In recognition of its work defending our constitutional right to choose, Fortune Magazine described NARAL as “one of the top 10 advocacy groups in America.”
