Transcript of Child Trafficking
Print Child Trafficking is the unjust truth of children being sold and bought against their will for sexual purposes and forced labor. "One of the things I think about a lot is death. I wonder about dying. Am I going to die young or not?" (Ellis 63)
"People with AIDS are really looked down on, like they're bad people. People who once were their friends suddenly want nothing to do with them." (Ellis 69)
"Everyone at this school has been affected by AIDS. You could ask any child here. I know we all look like normal children, but we all have a story." (Ellis 69) "Labor trafficking victims make an alarmingly high number of consumer goods and food products that are both imported and exported t the United States." "Where human rights have good reason to suspect that many youngsters sell sex because they've been abandoned, kidnapped, or sold into virtual slavery to pay off parental debts." (Childhood's 1) "These kids are working, selling their bodies to support their families. Parents have full knowledge of this and most of the time drive their children into prostitution.This is often a family choice, whether the family is rich or poor." (Childhood's 1, Nelson 1) "Victims have been identified in cities, suburbs, and rural areas in all 50 states. Some are hidden behind locked doors and others out in public on the streets. " (Victims 1) "This thrives because the community doesn't know what is going on and the government isn't trained to do anything about the issue." (Victims 1) "Illegal immigrants in the U.S. are highly vulnerable because they don't have many job options and they don't have legal statuses or rights. So many people come to the U.S. for work but most can't afford to do it legally so they come here and work for cheap labor or work in the trafficking business." (Stolen 89, Victims 1) "Around the world, nearly 250 million kids are working for a living. Teens and kids are working in sweltering heat for hours each day. They sacrifice their time and their freedom for pennies to bring home to their families." (Nelson 1, Stolen 84, 86, 88) People have tried to organizing programs to stop trafficking but the sad truth is that child trafficking will never stop. There is no way to stop these people from selling young, innocent children into a world where they are tormented and deprived of their childhood and their "freedom to dream". (Nelson) Ellis, Deborah.
