Colorado Democrats Kill Bill Penalizing Raping Children

by Warner Todd Huston at

Colorado is one of the worst states for human trafficking, according to federal data. Yet state Democrats recently killed a bill that would have stiffened penalties for raping children and selling their flesh for sex.

Last week, the Colorado Springs Gazette noted in horror that the Democrats fell all over themselves to make it easier for child traffickers.

“It seems inconceivable that elected officials would signal Colorado as a friendly state for adults to have sex with children — which is always rape — who are sold by foreign cartels and domestic sociopathic profiteers. Yet, that’s what Democrats on the House State, Civic, Military and Veterans Affairs Committee — the ‘kill committee’ — did last week,” the paper wrote.

Geoff Rogers, co-founder of the United States Institute Against Human Trafficking, blasted the Democrats.

“The United States is the No. 1 consumer of sex worldwide. So, we are driving the demand as a society,” Rogers told Fox News.

The U.S. State Dept. often ranks the Colorado as one of the top states in the nation for sex trafficking, and was even no. 1 in 2018. It was this fact House Bill 1092 was intended to address.

Unfortunately, House Speaker Julie McCluskie and Majority Leader Monica Duran, both of whom are Colorado Democrats, pushed the bill into the “kill committee” to make sure it dies.
