This is so SAD and DISGUSTING! YOUR Flesh and Blood can have a net worth of just $40! If that's all a precious life is worth, maybe you should refrain from sexual conduct and not produce any children.

It is terrible that in the twenty first century we still have slavery in whatever form. It should be a priority for all world leaders to stamp it out.
