Senate Democrats this week may have derailed a billed which would crack down on Human Trafficking over language they deemed 'anti-abortion.'
I wasn't surprised by this. The language was in the bill all along but it appears the Democrats played possum in order to get the bill scrubbed in the eleventh hour. Democrats, you see, are a bit conflicted when it comes to sex trafficking.
"Fines paid by those convicted of the sex-trafficking crimes would go into a fund to help victims. But Democrats are balking because the legislation also contains a Republican-inserted provision that bars the use of fines to pay for abortions, except in cases of rape, incest or when the life of the pregnant woman is in jeopardy." - Fox News
All aboard the 'Lolita Express': Flight logs reveal the many trips Bill Clinton and Alan Dershowitz took on pedophile Jeffrey Epstein's private jet with anonymous womenYeah, Bubba appears to have been a frequent visitor to Nookie Island where his billionaire buddy kept underage sex slaves. Epstein was a big donor to Democrats across the country until he was finally convicted. When Republicans began making political hay of the donations some Democrats began returning the pedophile's money.
The Senate Anti-Trafficking bill does allow for some abortions to be paid for from the fines that are collected so the objection by Democrats seems a bit thin. Why does a multi-billion dollar abortion industry need subsidies anyway? It should be obvious that there's another reason Democrats are willing to defeat this bill. It's about the money and their donors.
That trope about a Republican War on Women, bite me.
