FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 18, 2015
In response to the National Republican Senatorial Committee’s deceptive robocall campaign against Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, NARAL Pro-Choice America released the following statement:
“This is politics at their worst. The National Republican Senate Committee manipulated what started as a strong bipartisan effort to protect survivors of human trafficking, many of whom have been sexually abused, into a deceptive misinformation campaign against the Senate Minority Leader.
Senator Reid has taken the honorable steps to ensure that this bill does what it was originally intended to do—protect women and girls from what could be considered ‘modern-day slavery.’ Unfortunately, partisan anti-choice strategists are so blindly obsessed with abortion and rolling back women’s rights, they’ll even lie to do it.
We elect our leaders to use their influence to help protect us from harm, not hurt those in need of protection. It’s about time our elected leaders get back to business and move our country forward.”
