This traffic will not stop until those that use children for sex reach the point that they stop paying for the service. Fines, jail time and public humiliation are needed. Too often those who want children for sex go unpunished - many are wealthy and feel that they are above the law - some are even the law in their area.

I can understand that for whatever reason some people may prefer children but that does not mean they have to act on those urges with real children. Acting on those urges has to become so unpleasant that they will keep them in the realm of fantasies.

Each year by some estimates, hundreds of thousands of girls and boys are trafficked globally. Child trafficking is a global issue.
Very few people are actually aware of how large the problem is. Even if people are aware, they generally turn a blind eye towards the entire situation.

"Sold: An MTV EXIT Special", a gripping documentary shows the tragedy of trafficking in South Asia where thousand of young girls and boys are sold into modern-day slavery.
Every individual has a skill they can contribute to fight human trafficking, and together we can end trafficking in our lifetime.

Watch this documentary online:

Imprisonment, humiliation or fines, will not deter people from entering into this business.
You cannot rationalize with this type of mentality.

Unwanted, aabused and disrespected children become predators of others, as adults. Education, love and caring, from the beginningof childhood, is the key.
If we tryly, cared about life, saving these children, is where your attention should be placed.
Neither I, nor anyone who has not suffered as these sex slaves have, can comprehend their pain.

We must encourage others to be aware of this problem so perhaps more will be done. It's tragic and heartbreaking and to know that it is happening and do nothing about it is criminal.perhaps bygetting this article and petition out there more people will be aware and more will be done to help.

thank you, Simone--I think about all the Nepali girls and women trafficked to India for prostitution, very tragic outcomes for them. Most of them die in India and never are able to return to Nepal to their families. Sad. Please continue this work.
