Sex Trafficking at Planned Parenthood

I saw a disturbing video that was posted today at National Review Online. I already posted this on my Facebook profile tonight too, but I know that a several people who visit my website aren’t Facebook friends with me. Even though posting this here will only lead to a few more people being informed about this, I think it’s important to get the word out as much as I can.

For those of you who haven’t heard, an employee at a Planned Parenthood office in New Jersey was caught on tape aiding and abetting human and sex trafficking:

Absolutely despicable. The full story about it can be read here at Live Action. According to Live Action (see the final paragraph in the linked story), this isn’t the first time they’ve caught Planned Parenthood violating the law, either.

Hopefully the FBI and the Department of Justice do a full and thorough investigation of Planned Parenthood, and hopefully this prompts Congress to revoke taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood at long last. Taxpayers should neither be funding the murder of innocent children, nor should they be funding any assistance given to human and sex traffickers. Perhaps this is a completely isolated incident. But perhaps it isn’t. That’s why an investigation must happen.

Human and sex trafficking is a major problem around the world, even here in the United States. There are nearly two million children worldwide who are enslaved in the sex trafficking industry, and 600,000-800,000 enslaved children, women, and men are trafficked across international borders each year. Slavery is very real in today’s world. Most Americans tend to think that slavery was done away with back during the American Civil War, but they’re wrong. For more information on human and sex trafficking and what’s being done to stop it, please visit International Justice Mission. IJM is doing a lot of yeoman’s work in this area, and they deserve to be supported.

Please spread the word about this story. Somehow I doubt it’s going to get much attention in the media. Stories about human and sex trafficking rarely seem to get coverage, and that’s a shame. It’s a much more serious problem than many that get all sorts of media attention, and it should be an issue that can unite people of nearly all political and religious beliefs.
