In Steubenville, Ohio, high school football players are accused of repeatedly raping an unconscious 16-year-old girl who was either drunk or rendered helpless by a date-rape drug and was apparently lugged like a sack of potatoes from party to party.
ENOUGH!

VAWA has protected many spouses from domestic violence - men, women and children. It is a tool used by abused immigrants to avoid deportation. The bill in congress HR 4970 will prevent many from staying in the United States and ultimately hurt many who are already victims of their abusers.

Tell Congress not to pass HR 4970 and keep the Senate version S 1925.
