Explainer: What you should know about the human trafficking bill

    Acton Institute: The recent human trafficking bill, officially known as theJustice for Victims of Trafficking Act of 2015, was originally introduced in in the Senate on January 2015 by Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX). The bill had 34 cosponsors in the Senate, 13 Democrats and 21 Republicans (Sen. Barbara Boxer initially signed on as a cosponsor but withdrew her support a day later.) However, after initially supporting the bill, Democrats launched a filibuster because of language in the bill related to abortion.

Modern bondage: Slavery is very much alive today

    Aleteia: As anyone who has studied history knows, the man-made evils the world faces today – war, terrorism, abortion, poverty, and the rest – share an ancient provenance. Technology can increase or diminish the scale of these evils, and in some cases it can even introduce novel expressions of them, but on a fundamental level we moderns wrestle with the same moral pathologies, both personal and social, as our ancestors. Truly, “What has been, that will be; what has been done, that will be done. Nothing is new under the sun!” (Ecclesiastes 1:9)

Unlikely coalition of liberals and conservatives is shifting the way we view – and treat – people who sell sex | Salon

    Salon: And now, with eight states handing down felony charges for prostitution — where non-violent, mostly female prostitution offenders are serving in state prison – a battle to lessen criminal penalties has been joined by an unlikely ally. Conservative lawmakers, looking at price tags, are also receptive to changing the way we see – and treat– people working in prostitution.
