There is way more of this child sex trafficking going on than most people realize. Yes, it is widespread in Cambodia, Thailand, and other countries,but it has a huge presence here in the US and needs to be stopped. Children should be children with none of the terror, fear and violence that goes along with this crime.

The child sex trafficking is spread allover the world. We should fight against it. Together we could make a better world for us and our children, with no fear at all.

Only men are really able to stop this crime. If men stop using innocent women and children, there would be no pimp any more, and therefore no child sex trafficking. Unfortunately this will never happen.

This sadly is just one "spot" recognizes. Manhattan has to be one of the great offerenders of child trafficking in the nation.

It figures. DC, the home of the sleaziest, slimiest, corrupt politicians anywhere.

I often wonder if many missing children could be found in sex traffic rings. It is so sad and scary.

If someone had told Rush Limpballs he wouldn't have had to travel to the Dominican Republic. You know most of their American customers are dittoheads.

Throughout history, children being slaves has been the norm. Being allowed to have a childhood has been the exception. In fact, the concept of childhood, the whole idea that humans mature slowly and aren't necessarily mature because they have secondary sex characteristics, is less than 200 years old. Those of us who understand this and are fighting to allow children to be children still have a very uphill fight on our hands.

We must start caring enough about our children, to put an end to this situation.

Parents who are neglecting their children are the ones that end up being sex slaves, they crave attention & think this is where they will find it! Parents needs to step up to take care of their children. Children learn what they live! Thanks Agnes.
