Commercial Sexual Exploitation is Modern Day Slavery!
Slavery by definition is a system under which people are treated as property and are forced to work. Slaves can be held against their will from the time of their capture, purchase or birth, and deprived of the right to leave, to refuse to work, or to demand compensation. Legally slavery is abolished, however it still exists. There are at least 25 million children worldwide in a sexual form of slavery every year. Slavery has never disappeared. The 13th amendment was passed by Congress on January 31, 1865 and was ratified on December 6, 1865. The 13th amendment, which formally abolished slavery in the United States, passed the Senate on April 8, 1864, and the House on January 31, 1865. But today in the United States we have more humans enslaved, than before it was abolished!
