Sexual Trafficking – The Facts – VIDEO

 

The statistics are frightening.

From UN GIFT, the facts:

An estimated 2.5 million people are in forced labor (including sexual exploitation) at any given time as a result of trafficking.

Of these:

* 1.4 million – 56%- are in Asia and the Pacific
* 250,000 – 10% – are in Latin America and the Caribbean
* 230,000 – 9.2% – are in the Middle East and Northern Africa
* 130,000 – 5.2 % – are in sub-Saharan countries
* 270,000 – 10.8% – are in industrialized countries
* 200,000 – 8% – are in countries in transition

STOP THE TRAFFIK
is a growing global movement of individuals, communities and organizations fighting to PREVENT the sale of people, PROTECT the trafficked and PROSECUTE the traffickers.

I see some of you think legalizing prostitution is the answer. Hell No! That's the problem. That does not solve anything! The pimps just lower their price and from what I hear and read those so called legal Brothels are almost as bad! We need education, and stop glorifying prostitution as in the movies. It's a big joke in TV shows and movies. Make the punishment fit the crime. Harsh punishment-huge fines and long long jail times. Having the Johns names published everywhere. I would love to see a death sentence for child prostitution. Make those filthy monsters pay!

So sick. Why can't the perverts just buy a sex doll, instead of having to torment a living human?

Maybe we should all work toward a better world with better 'human' beings. It says in the bible, paraphrase here, Noah saved 2 of every species...did that include every kind of perversion so it could multiply for today's world...
