The right to life is given by God and affirmed by our Constitution. Chemical abortion not only ends a life but increases the risk to the life of the mother. American tax dollars should not be used to fulfill Margaret Sanger's ideals around the world by funding international abortions and abortifacient experiments. The right to life should be protected from womb to tomb.
Pornography is not protected speech but violence against women and a tool sexual predators use for grooming targets for abuse. So-called "adult entertainment" has spawned an epidemic of child pornography, aka, child sexual abuse material (CSAM), which is a federal crime. Pornography has a detrimental impact on the brain and enables the commercial sex industry from within, with each click. All obscenity laws must be enforced and victims of this organized crime must receive justice.
The internet has become a sophisticated haven for sex trafficking by ways of social media, and popular apps and the dark web. Victims are hidden in plain sight. There are signs we can learn to detect, report, and rescue. Parents and friends must understand new ways to keep their loved ones as safe as possible.
Prostitution is not the oldest profession in the world, but the oldest form of exploitation by men of women and children. Prostitution is inseparably linked to sex trafficking. It is extremely difficult to tell the difference between a person who is willingly selling sex or forced, defrauded, or coerced into the transaction. Legalizing prostitution or any component of the commercial sex trade creates legal violence against women, men, and children and makes sex trafficking prosecution more difficult than it already is. States must recognize prostitution as a form of sexual exploitation by increasing penalties on pimps and buyers and enact restorative pathways for survivors.
Abortion, sex trafficking, and pornography are all businesses that exploit women for profit and are an assault on their dignity. Pornography increases the market demand for sex trafficking and trafficking victims are often forced to perform in pornography to compound profits for pimps and traffickers. Pregnancy gets in the way of profit for the pimp, so there is a cordial relationship between abortion clinics and victims of the sex trade. Racial disparities cannot be overlooked when examining abortion and the commercial sex trade. U.S. abortion statistics, popular themes in pornographic content, and the buyers of sex versus their minority-class victims, all include a glaring racial imbalance and warrant a true social justice and moral response.
Christianity is at the very foundation of what makes the United States of America great. Faith and public policy go hand in hand because there is no justice without a moral compass. Our faith in action takes courage to live a life that faithfully communicates the Gospel of Jesus Christ in all spheres of influence.
