Claims global warming will encourage prostitution

26 Mar, 2015

Lee introduces House Concurrent Resolution 29, a resolution which warns that because of the conflict and instability that global warming will create, women will be forced into prostitution in order to obtain enough food and clean water for their families. Excerpt:

Women will disproportionately face harmful impacts from climate change. 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, unplanned pregnancy, and poor reproductive health.
