Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA), one of the most notorious abortion advocates in the US Senate, has baffled the nation once again. Boxer has signed on to sponsor a bill cracking down on human trafficking in the United States and abroad. In a statement, Boxer commented: “We must send a clear message that human trafficking and the exploitation of children will not be tolerated.”
That statement comes from one of the most ardent opponents to the ban on partial-birth abortion. Apparently, Boxer does not consider sticking scissors the back of the neck of child a form of exploitation.
In debating partial-birth abortion, Boxer’s extremism on abortion came to the forefront when she asserted on the Senate floor that human life begins “when you bring your baby home, when your baby is born.”
Boxer introduced the Child Protection Compact Act earlier this year. The provisions of that legislation are contained within this new bill, entitled the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2011. The irony of Boxer taking such a strong stance against human trafficking is her unrelenting support for the abortion industry, which has routinely been caught displaying a willingness to harbor human traffickers and has been complicit in covering up cases of statutory rape.
In countless undercover videos, Planned Parenthood centers across the country have been caught red-handed ignoring evidence of human trafficking and exploitation of minor girls.
In February, two pro-life advocates, posing as a pimp and a prostitute, visited Planned Parenthood Central New Jersey’s abortion center in Perth Amboy. Clinic manager Amy Woodruff, an LPN, advised the pair to have their trafficked underage girls life about their avoid to avoid mandatory reporting laws.
“Even if they lie, just say, ‘Oh he’s the same age as me, 15,’…it’s just that mainly 14 and under we have to, doesn’t matter if their partner’s the same age, younger, whatever, 14 and under we have to report,” Woodruff said.
“Like on the paperwork there’s going to be a point that asks, uh, like are you sexually active, stuff like that … if they’re under a certain age… – you know, me and my other counselor, like for the most part we want as little information as possible – cause we don’t want to be involved…”
Woodruff also coached the alleged sex traffickers on where to get an abortion that won’t be met with as much scrutiny, referring them to the New Jersey-based abortion business named Metropolitan Medical Association, where she suggested “their protocols aren’t as strict as ours and they don’t get audited the same way that we do.”
The woman posing as a prostitute in the video also asked how long after the abortion until the girls can have sex again, and, when Woodruff said “minimum of 2 weeks,” she asked what sex acts the girls could still do to make money.
“Waist up, or just be that extra action walking by” to advertise sex to potential clients, Woodruff recommended.
Just in the past week, the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals cited three of the state’s seven abortion facilities had failed to properly report instances of statutory rape to state officials, as required by state law.
While Boxer’s concerns about human trafficking may be sincere, it is hypocritical to push human trafficking legislation while defending the scandal-ridden abortion industry. A logical first step in eradicating human trafficking would be de-funding organizations proven to aid and abet those who engage in human trafficking.
