Although many believe that we would do anything to help human trafficking victims recover, efforts to support them can come close to a halt.

Assistance to trafficking victims was added to the Violence Against Women Act in 2013, but Republicans in the U.S. House fought to keep it from being renewed because of reproductive health services offered to victims.

If others gave up their lives to help slaves in the past, conservatives can surely endure discomfort to aid them today.
