John Seago from Texas Right to Life testified on Wednesday that he “knows” of a DPS officer who personally rescued human trafficking victims who had also been coerced into abortion. He’s talking about Captain Jeoff Williams, who Rep. Molly White quotes in a press release someone who has “personally rescued victims of human trafficking who had been coerced into abortions in order to keep them working as sex slaves.” The press release calls him, “Jeff” Williams and we had a little trouble finding this “Jeff Williams.” Turns out his name is Jeoff Williams. He is a Captain in the Criminal Investigation Division of the Department of Public Safety where he works on sex trafficking cases. Here’s what he really said:
“One victim was forced to have an abortion in order to continue working as a sex slave. And another was forced to undergo breast augmentation in increase her value for exploitation. She now has some very serious medical problems associated with that.”
