Abortion’s Role in Allowing the Sex Trafficking Industry to Continue to Exploit Women

The abortion industry’s role in empowering the abuse of women trapped in the sex-trafficking industry is often overlooked. One study of 66 human-trafficking survivors found that between them they had 114 abortions, with coercion playing a role in at least some of their abortions. “Notably, the phenomenon of forced abortion as it occurs in sex trafficking transcends the political boundaries of the abortion debate, violating both the pro-life belief that abortion takes innocent life and the pro-choice ideal of women’s freedom to make their own reproductive choices.”

Several investigations have also shown Planned Parenthood’s failure to report statutory rape and sexual abuse. One victim said she was taken to Planned Parenthood “because they didn’t ask any questions.” This is decidedly not pro-woman.

In this video from Students for Life, Patrina Mosley explains why abortion enables sex trafficking and violence against women.
