Brad Mattes, President of Life Issues Institute, recently recorded a radio special on the dangers of human trafficking. He reports that there are currently over 27 million persons held in slavery worldwide. One out of every three children who run away from home will be approached by a human trafficker within 48 hours – and the average age of entry is between 12-14 for girls 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. Charlotte Lozier Institute Senior Policy Analyst Genevieve Plaster reports that trafficking in persons “generates about $32 billion per year.”
