At a time when we thought we were marching forward protecting sexually exploited women, challenging our culture to do the right thing and prevent human trafficking, there comes a new push to legalize prostitution and normalize sexual exploitation.
“What sorrow for those who say that evil is good and good is evil, that dark is light and light is dark, bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter. ” Isaiah 5:20
Also the following is well stated from our friends at SWITCH . It is mind blowing to think that a movement like #metoo that took huge strides in giving people who have been sexually assaulted a voice are not willing to give survivors of human trafficking a voice. Many survivors of human trafficking have horrible stories of sexual abuse and assault that happened while being trafficked. While the Survivor’s Agenda has used language to make it sound inclusive, members of this movement have not been willing to work with survivor leaders to come to a compromise or use neutral language regarding sex work. The bottom line is this: they are working to legalize prostitution in a way that will not hold pimps, brothel owners, panderers, etc responsible because there will be no legal ramifications if sex work is legalized. There will be a lack of protection and resources. Please read the article located below to understand more.
Meet Jake. He’s my Bailey’s BFF. He’s a regular visitor to our home and brings so much light – to Bailey and to me!
That’s what true friends do for all of us. They step into our lives no matter our circumstances. They don’t care whether our homes – or our hearts – are messy or clean.They just want to be with us.
Those kind of bonds are what it takes to fight this fight against human trafficking. We welcome victims and keep walking with them at their pace. And we bolster and build one another up when sometimes the fight just seems too hard.
I am so grateful to be in this fight with all of you. Grateful for friends that love and just like sweet Jake, bring the light to Lighthouse!
