Add this to your list of crazy things Democrats say, from asking to look for a photo of the Flag placed by Neil Armstrong on Mars to concern that overpopulation would capsize Guam, California Democrat Barbara Lee now says that climate change will cause women to sell their bodies.
Climate change is causing glaciers to melt, heat waves to become more intense, species to become extinct and low-lying island nations like Tuvalu to disappear altogether. To this list of calamities, U.S. Rep. Barbara Lee has added another: Climate change could force more women to become prostitutes.
That warning is contained in a resolution the California Democrat introduced in Congress on Friday. In House Concurrent Resolution 36, Rep. Lee and 11 co-sponsors note that warming temperatures could push as many as 3 million people into poverty by the year 2050. Some of those people may be women looking for any possible way to provide for themselves and their children.
“Food-insecure women with limited socioeconomic resources may be vulnerable to situations such as sex work, transactional sex, and early marriage that put them at risk for HIV, STIs [sexually transmitted infections], unplanned pregnancy, and poor reproductive health,” according to the resolution.
