Sen. Ted Budd (R-NC) introduced a new bill called the “Stopping Traffickers and Their Accomplices Act,” which aims to combat human trafficking through abortion providers. The bill would require abortion providers to file a report with the National Human Trafficking Hotline within 24 hours if they have reasonable suspicion that a woman is a victim of trafficking. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) would then submit that report to the Department of Justice (DOJ) and local law enforcement.
In addition, the legislation would mandate that abortion providers participate in annual training to recognize the signs of trafficking and certify that they have taken steps to assist women who are being trafficked. The bill is aimed at both preventing human trafficking and aiding its victims.
Human trafficking is a major issue in the United States and around the world, with estimates indicating that there are millions of victims worldwide. Abortion providers are in a unique position to potentially identify and assist trafficking victims, as they may be the only medical professionals that a victim comes into contact with.
While the bill has yet to be voted on, it has already sparked controversy. Advocates for abortion argue that the bill unfairly places the burden of identifying and reporting trafficking on abortion providers, and could potentially dissuade victims from seeking necessary medical care. Yet and still, most people know that the bill is a necessary step in combating human trafficking and protecting its victims.
Regardless of one’s stance on the issue, it is clear that human trafficking is a pressing concern that requires action. I can see that the “Stopping Traffickers and Their Accomplices Act” is a great tool.
