We hear from letter writer Grazie Pozo Christie that Sen. Bill Nelson should reverse his objection to this bill because it has an amendment to stop federal funding of abortions. It looks like this bill isn’t about stopping sex trafficking, but abortions.
I applaud Nelson on his stance to filibuster this bill until it is killed. If the Republicans want to stop sex trafficking then there should be nothing added to this bill. If they want to stop abortions then send an independent abortion bill through the process to get it on the floor of Congress. My instincts tell me that an anti-abortion bill will never pass.
