The Importance Of Human Life Throughout The World

All human life is precious and should be treated as such. However in this world there are those who feel otherwise. They are known as human traffickers. The same way we go shopping for new furniture these people go shopping for babies, your children, young males, young females and women.

Young pregnant women are promised thousands for their newborns, having come from poverty the idea of having more money than they thought possible excites them and they agree. Following the birth of their child, the baby is sold on the black market to " adoptive parents " who play a hefty sum. The money is divided between is divided between the traffickers, doctors, lawyers and border officials. The young women's payment isn't the thousands of dollars she was promised. They are lucky if they walk away with a few hundred. The blame for the difference is the expenses that must be paid for the doctors, travel, lodging and purchase of forged documents.

The black market relies on human trafficking for sex, slave labor, suicide bombers and organ harvesting. Since this method of obtaining the unwilling participants is illegal it's hard to be completely accurate however researchers estimate that more than 80% of trafficking victims are female and approximately 50% are children.

Human trafficking is wide spread reaching as far as Russia, Ukraine, Albania, Bulgaria, Lithuania, Romania, China, Japan, United Kingdom, Kosovo, Belgium, Germany, Greece, Israel, Italy, Netherlands, Turkey, The Middle East, Nepal, Brazil, Thailand, North Korea and The United States.

Human trafficking in the US is primarily for the sex industry which includes, prostitution, strip clubs, massage services with benefits, peep shows and touch shows. They are used to work in sweatshops, farming and domestic slaves, also known as domestic servitude.

The Taliban looks for young children between 8 to 10 years old. They send them into crowded places as suicide bombers.

Other countries traffic for sex slaves and prostitutes. Some " owners " teach the females by using brute force, raping, bullying, scaring them into being submissive and learning sex acts that will please their owner and the customers. When they are considered experienced they are forced to bring other females into the " family ". The sex traffickers have various methods to subdue members of their " family ". They include rape, physical abuse, solitary confinement, threatening to kill their families, gang rape, starvation and beatings. They choose these methods to break their spirit with the potential of " selling " the girls for profit. Apparently girls that are conditioned and are subdued go for higher money because they have already been broken in and that saves the knew owners because they can hire them out almost immediately.

Sadly girls are young as 6 years old are sold in the sex slave business by their own families. They are required to perform the same sexual games, perform various sex acts and are subdued in the same manner as the older girls. I heard stories of the younger girls having socks stuffed into their mouths to smother their screams while they are being raped. Approximately Thirty Thousand lose their lives each year due to the abusive manner in which they are treated. Many of these young ladies have sexually transmitted diseases and caused an extremely high increase in transmitting the HIV virus.

It's been stated that women from North Korea leave their country and escape to China in hopes of finding a better life. It's estimated that nine out of ten are sold into the human trafficking nightmare. Those who complain or cause trouble are sent back to North Korea.

Many of the victims of human trafficking face many challenges including the physical risks, drug and alcohol addictions, abuse to their body both inside and out, psychological side effects including depression, suicidal thoughts, post traumatic stress and dissociate disorders.

It's stated that there are millions of girls from the age of 6 to 24 that have been victimized all over the world, including the United States. The fact that people within The United States participates barbaric in human business sickens me. I never expected that our country would be part of something so hideous. This is one violation of human rights that needs to be addressed immediately. I hope that our esteem government takes all the measures necessary to address this issue and save the countless lives of the innocent victims in our country.

Let's rescue the innocent victims of the hideous business of selling human lives.

      Thank You very much. It's scarey thinking about what goes on in the world and sometimes even our own back yards. We all need to be aware because you never know what you will come across and being educated can make the difference in someone else's life.
