“Stolen Innocence” Documentary Film

This article and video tells of  a not uncommon problem in India.  Sex trafficking is a horrendous fact of life for poor girls and families everywhere, even in the wealthy west. People in power and wealth acting with impunity is   modern day slavery!  Thank God there are brave story tellers, film makers, and justice workers who are shining lights into the dark crevices and trying to save these little girls. I have no doubt that many of the authorities in India are appalled by this situation. Recently there have been stories of Indian police raiding brothels and businesses such as brick making factories  to free the  poor who are working there as slaves  . . . . . .  men, women and children.

The desperation of utter poverty only adds to this problem. Parents are often faced with the choice of selling their children in order to provide for  their others.

Are you aware of this worldwide problem for the poor? 

Thanks J. K. !
