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.
