Oh dear- a very bad situation indeed. Human trafficking is nothing more than present day slavery. We are stepping up the laws to prevent this practice and need to continue to pray and be activists against this.

The chinese used to drown baby girls at birth too. I have no sympathy for these monsters and i hope they all suffer it is their fault! We need to make absolute sure that women are protected and kept as far away as possible from this nightmare of a country! They have some nerve.

Yes, the situation is ripe for a huge increase in trafficking but don't fool yourself. It is happening all over the world right now. The Chinese situation will only open up a huge market for traffickers unless activists step up now.

I couldn't read the whole article as the website was not functioning. But from the little bit posted here it says there will be a whole lot more men than women in a short while. Fewer women could mean fewer children. And, that's a good thing. The world is vastly over populated.
The women should be happy too, they'll have their pick of the crop!

Oh, I couldn't comment on the human trafficking as the website was not functioning. But, any human trafficking
is horrible!
