On Saturday, the far-left Women’s March sent their support to a website known for facilitating sex trafficking and underage prostitution.
The U.S. government shutdown Backpage.com on Friday and reportedly brought criminal charges against seven different people involved in the operation of the website for their involvement in prostitution and money laundering.
Despite a win for victims of prostitution and sex trafficking, the Women’s March saw the seizing of this illegal website as a major loss — and they advocated for the rights of sex workers.
“The shutting down of #Backpage is an absolute crisis for sex workers who rely on the site to safely get in touch with clients. Sex workers rights are women’s rights,” the Women’s March tweeted on Saturday.
