WOMEN ESCAPE THE HORROR OF SEX TRAFFICKING

Sex trafficking is also known as prostitution. It is an illegal practice.  Sex trafficking is human trafficking for the purpose of sexual use, including sexual slavery.

A victim is forced, in one of a variety of ways, into a situation of the want on their trafficker(s). They are then used by said trafficker(s) to give sexual services to customers. This is an exchange activity. It could be for money or an item. Individuals practice this act due to several reasons.

This could be due to poverty, lack of parental control or peer pressure. It could also be a means of living for some individuals or due lack of education.

Further, sex trafficking could be based on consent or forced on individuals. It is also an illegal practice when individuals without their consent are pushed into this activity.

In some instances, individuals are promised employment outside the country only to be sold into sex slavery. Also they are promised huge sums of money and other incentives which are proven to be false.

In the most recent incident North Korean women who make mistakes¬† end up being sold into the illegal sex trade in China. CNN’s Paula Hancocks speaks with a South Korean pastor whose organization helps free victims and get them to safety.

In summary sex slavery is illegal and should be strongly prohibited.
