Currently, in the State of Washington the fine for being convicted of "soliciting a prostitute" aka buying commercial sexual exploitation is ... wait for it ... $150. It's also not a sex crime and does not require registration as a sex offender. One of the bills under consideration would increase the fine substantially to $1,500 for the first offense, $2,500 for the second offense, and on the 3rd offense would be a sex crime requiring registration as a sex offender. If this passes, it would be a HUGE step forward in stopping the demand!
Please join me in praying for all victims of human trafficking, for conversion of heart for all traffickers, for inspired bold leadership by legislators, and for an end to human trafficking.
