Victims in the Shadows: Sanctity of Life 2018



The victims and perpetrators of human trafficking are all around us—and the abortion industry plays a key role.

There are over 27 million slaves worldwide. One out of every three kids who run away from home within 48 hours will be approached by a human trafficker. The average age of entry for girls is between 12-14 and 11-13 for boys.

“Human trafficking is the second largest and fastest-growing criminal industry in the world,” says Nita Belles, the Regional Director of Oregonians Against Trafficking Humans. As for the abortion industry, Belles argues that they “are profiting tremendously” by helping to secure abortions for the victims of sex trafficking.

Fortunately, there are many ways to combat human trafficking: awareness of the tell-tale signs, joining anti-trafficking coalitions, and saying something if you see something. It is important that parents teach their children the dangers of human trafficking and build up their faith and reliance on Christ.

  1. Native American tribes when they had one of their women kidnapped by white people white men who then rape them and brutalize them and made them slaves, they would go after who did that get their women back and kill those who did that to their women and girls. I think that logic an application should be applied to anyone who kidnaps a young woman or girl for trafficking like pimps as they are called. It should be capital punishment for them wherever they are found on site terminated eliminated. Give me one reason not to do that and I believe in God. Moses was commanded to kill those just like these people and he did Israel do it. I don’t know why we don’t because we should. Traffickers need to die on site end of story.
