Take action: support immigrant women's health care!
We stand in solidarity with the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health and a broad coalition of reproductive health and immigrants' rights groups in opposing the punitive Aderholt Amendment to the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations bill.
The Aderholt Amendment duplicates and builds on the Hyde Amendment by banning federal funding of abortion for women in immigration detention centers, effectively taking away any option to end a pregnancy -- despite high rates of sexual assault and abuse in detention facilities. A cruel measure, this provision singles out and targets immigrant women at their most vulnerable. The House of Representatives passed this bill earlier this month but the Senate Appropriations Committee still has not passed it.
Speak out against this unfair and unnecessary restriction! Click here to contact the Senate Appropriations Committee and urge them to support a DHS Appropriations bill with NO added restrictions on women's health care!
