This is a shocking thing, slavery was abolished years ago.

Noted thank you Rose.
To make a greater contribution in human rights causes, particularly in sex slavery and human trafficking, consider joining this Care2 group: Slavery Today

The fact that humanity can do such horrible things to other human beings without consideration of their feelings or that karma will turn around and do worse to them with interest is appalling.

Utterly and thoroughly despicable.

Imagine my shock to read the original article and discover it comes from my own home town! Of course, I know there is trafficking here - advertised quite blatantly on Craig's List and local ads for massage (in your home or office!) But it is a surprise to see the article receive this type of notoriety! Thanks Rose, for publicizing this horror. I am somewhat dismay that our public safety chairman can come up with nothing better than to "focus on the johns" as way to stop this multi-billion dollar business!

Very sad. I hope that slavery in all forms will be eliminated soon. It is arguable that many people are effectively slaves.

Noted and thank you Rose. This is a most despicable trade. It's horrible that it happens in every country in the world. Delete the demand and there is no trade.

I doubt that a stroke of anyone's pen will eliminate this abomination. For a good read and more detailed look at how this happens (and prostitution, sex slavery is the high end as there are also laboreres and other "categories" of these poor folks) see david Baldacci's new book 'The Forgotten".

Pienso que la prostitución debería ser legal y dejar que las mujeres adultas tengan la libertad de dedicarse a ello si así lo desean, porque , qué diferencia hay entre una prostituta y una actriz porno?
