Petition Tag - sex slaves
The practice of slavery has plagued the human species for over 5,000 years. Yet here in the 21st century, slavery is more prevalent than ever before with an estimated 27 million people enslaved worldwide.
Even in the U.S slavery continues today. The U.S government estimates 14000-18000 people are trafficked into the U.S annually and put into some form of modern day slavery.
In Asia both children and women are being forced into the sex trade industry. These women and children are between the ages of 6-25. They are paid based on their beauty, age and virginity. After the men are done with them then they kill them or make them their own sex slaves.
