Help Stop Child Trafficking
Save the Children and Help Stop Child Trafficking / Modern-Day Slavery in the United States and Globally – How to Get Involved
Stop Child Trafficking in the United States – Victims of Child Sex Trafficking
Child Trafficking Statistics in the United States is the fastest-growing criminal underground business in the world: a $40 bill-a-year industry. This horrific crime is happening in our backyard, not just in other countries. How many enter the US is impossible to tally, but 800,000 estimated people are trafficked across international borders every year. Unlike drugs, humans can be sold repeatedly anywhere in the world. Sex slave trafficking is flourishing in the United States because courts are likelier to punish criminals for selling drugs than selling innocent children. Drug dealers can only sell drugs once, while sex traffickers can sell a woman or child for sex over 20 to 25 times a day.
Child Sex Trafficking – Save the Children – Victims of Human Trafficking
This is a worldwide disaster stripping the fundamental human rights and dignities of men, women, and children exploited by people making financial gains from using innocent women and children globally, especially with this administration allowing human trafficking to come over our borders.
How Victims of Child Sex Trafficking – Help Stop Human Trafficking
Child sex trafficking is a big business: Child abduction is organized by 1) Internet predators lurking for young girls in the United States, 2) kidnapped, or 3) runaway children picked up for commercial sex. In other countries, sex predators are deceived by offering the victims a better life, employment, educational opportunities, or marriage. Still, they are exploited for commercial sex, including prostitution, stripping pornography, and live sex shows. The human trafficking epidemic is the second biggest moneymaker in the world today. Some adults and child prostitutes are forced to service men 25 to 30 times a day. Some are trafficked for organ harvesting.

Sex traffickers use many ways to condition their victims of human trafficking, including subjecting them to:
starvation, denial of food or water
rape, gang rape,
physical abuse such as torture with burning cigarettes, battering, including hitting, kicking and pushing, beating,
confinement, tied up
threats of violence toward the victim and the victim’s family,
forced drug use,
denial of medical care or medications
rejection of contraceptives or condoms
denial of clothing or clothing other than “sex industry costumes.”
forced pregnancy or abortion
forced into humiliating or compromising situations so that photographs or videos can be made
forced participation in acts of violence against other victims
Psychological Effects of Child Sex Trafficking – Let's Stop Human Trafficking
Victims of human trafficking victims face physical risks, such as drug and alcohol addiction, contracting STDs, HIV, sterility, miscarriages, forced abortions, and vaginal and anal trauma, among others. Psychological effects include developing clinical depression, personality, and dissociative disorders, suicidal tendencies, and Post-Traumatic Stress. Touch of God Ministries is about ministering to the deeply wounded person. Help Stop Human Trafficking!
Who Exploits Women and Children of Human Trafficking
Did you know that terrorists use child sex trafficking and porn to fund their activities! Even cults, organized crime, mafia, gangs, etc., and government officials exploit women and children into modern-day slavery. Most human trafficking in the United States occurs in New York, California, Texas, and Florida, coming through port cities and Mexican borders through trucking, plane, ships, etc.
Who Pays For These Services of Modern-Day Slavery?
Government officials, prominent businessmen, porno movie houses, strip clubs, private escort services, etc., exploit women and children. Children as young as nine years old are used for child trafficking.
The borders of Mexico provide a pipeline to human traffickers and lure thousands of women from Europe with the promise of a good job and lifestyle. In other places around the globe, America is from Africa, Asia, and Eastern Europe.
