The Hill: Speech groups alarmed by sex trafficking bill
Emma Llanso, Director of CDT’s Free Expression Project, was interviewed by The Hill’s Julian Hattem regarding the SAVE Act.
Free-speech groups are resisting a House effort to crack down on advertisements for girls and women who have been forced into prostitution.
The bill from Rep. Ann Wagner (R-Mo.), which will hit the House floor on Tuesday afternoon, would make it a federal crime to advertise child prostitution or sex trafficking.
In the process, however, it could unintentionally hurt companies across the Internet with vague definitions and broad new prohibitions, critics say.
