Children Sold for Sex in America: A Painful Discovery

Compiled by Ken Simmons:

*According to an article by the website Share Together entitled "Trafficking by the Numbers."

Columnist's Note: I knew about child trafficking but wasn't aware of these astonishing numbers and level of wickedness.

Everyone who receives this should share it, or do something, especially sharing this article with those in high positions of authority and influence who can actually do something about it.

It was deeply painful for me to read this. It aroused great compassion for these children and righteous anger against their perpetrators. This is so horrific.

God help us!

Although this primarily affects young girls, children of both sexes are being sold for sex in the U.S. at an alarming rate. Estimates of America's children who have been taken as sex slaves range from 300,000 to 1.5 million.* The reason for the wide range in the statistical numbers is that only about 1% of such crimes are ever reported. The average young girl taken is between the ages of 11 and 14, but if you believe it couldn't get any worse, some are sold into sex slavery as young as 4 years old.

If America had 300,000 cases of measles in a year, this would be a national emergency. The government would call on the CDC to pull out all the stops to end this threat, but child sex trafficking is largely ignored. Rather than placing this tragedy high on the list of national priorities, it barely registers a blip on our radar screen. read more
