Pro-abortion activists in Washington, DC are now taking to blocking a bill that would help victims of human trafficking, the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act. Pro-abortion senators, prompted by groups like Planned Parenthood and NARAL, are playing politics rather than helping women and young girls. Some of these pro-abortion senators are the very ones who requested in February 2015 a hearing be held on human trafficking. This bill, once holding bipartisan support, is now stalled in the Senate because Planned Parenthood and NARAL realized it wouldn’t allow taxpayer dollars to pay for abortions.
This is a bill to protect human trafficking victims. But, claiming that language from the Hyde Amendment, language which prohibits taxpayer dollars from paying for abortions, was “snuck in” (even though it was public record for the past two months), Planned Parenthood and NARAL launched a vicious attack against the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act.
These groups are putting abortion before the needs of women and young girls who so desperately need our help. Holding hostage this bill to aid victims of trafficking only highlights Planned Parenthood and NARAL’s true motives…not to help women, but to promote and profit from abortion. No matter what.
