Child prostitution and sexual slavery is out of control here in the US. It is a worldwide problem, really a crisis that continues day after day. The situation demands a comprehensive societal response including forceful government action to reduce both the supply of children used for prostitution and the demand for child prostitutes. Both the supply side and the demand side of the equation need to be addressed.
When a man pays for the “services” of a child prostitute (underage victim) or of a woman who has been forced into prostitution, it is correctly called rape. The man cannot claim “consenting adults”, or that this is just a business transaction. We cannot sugar coat the ugly and painful reality here. There must be heavy prison time for these rapists when apprehended and prosecuted in the criminal courts.
We, in the US, spend hundreds of billions of dollars each and every year on defense (many times, it is actually used on offense). This is allegedly needed to protect the citizenry from actual and potential foreign enemies determined to hurt and kill us. With the epidemic of child prostitution and sexual slavery here in the US, we have actual assaults and attacks on the lives of our children. These victims are not all from south of the border or from Asia, and here illegally. Hundreds of thousands of US citizens, albeit under age (not adults), are forced into sexual slavery and their lives are turned into living hell.
This crisis is being largely ignored by the government (certainly at the federal level) and by the inept, corrupt mainstream media. What ever comes of the rare hearing about this crisis on Capitol Hill?
The victims must be rescued and attempts must be made to help them regain their health and dignity. The human cost involved is truly mind boggling. The continuing injustice of this epidemic of child rape cries out to Heaven for justice. This is a major battle field in the war against children here in the US.
Not wanting to reblog a very disturbing post to readers’ inboxes, I chose to provide a link to a very informative, yet very disturbing and painful article on this topic.
We as Americans need to quickly reassess our national priorities and put some serious effort and actions to end this sex trafficking and child prostitution in our society.
Here is the link to a heartbreaking post about a crisis that more concerned citizens need to be aware of:
