Tell Congress: Fund the Fight Against Zika!

We’ve got to take action on Zika.

As mosquitos spread the virus around the world, Americans are increasingly at risk of contracting the disease. We’ve already seen the impact of Zika in Brazil: a generation of babies born with severe birth defects and lifelong disabilities. Now, Zika has made its way to the continental United States – but we still have no vaccine, no cure, and no clear strategy on how to stop the epidemic.

We need to act now to stop the virus from spreading. Make your voice heard. Sign my petition right now and tell Congress to fund a plan of action on Zika!

Rather than fund the fight against the outbreak, anti-choice extremists in Congress have used Zika as an opportunity to defund Planned Parenthood, and have derailed critical Zika legislation with amendments that have nothing to do with the disease. Once again, they’re putting Americans’ health in jeopardy by playing politics, and it has to stop.

We can’t afford to wait any longer. Sign my petition right now and tell Congress to take immediate, meaningful action on Zika!
