Not long after Paul Ryan and Co. gave Obama his full funding for Planned Parenthood—$216 million—a full scale lawsuit was filed against those who exposed their butchery and selling of baby parts. And wouldn’t you know it, in a stunning act of legal jujitsu, a grand jury in Houston Texas (a human trafficking mecca) indicts the two pro-life activists who created the video that exposed this infanticide, even though their job was to investigate Planned Parenthood. I SMELL A RAT. Apparently so do these two Pro-Choice reporters, who admit in this article that something is wrong here…

Some children don’t live long enough to be ensnared in sex trafficking. They go to market without ever seeing the light of day, providing precious little body parts for lettuce chomping Mengel’s like we see in this video.
[quote]When you’ve recovered from your nausea, ask yourselves this: What kind of country do we live in where law-abiding businesses are fined, threatened and demonized for refusing to bake gay wedding cakes, but barbaric baby butchers are hailed by feminists, Hollywood and a president who asked God to “bless” them?[/quote]
God help us.

There has been a lot of talk about the war on women. Unfortunately for most Americans it is a cheap campaign slogan. The fact is, gendercide—the assault on women and girls— is a global problem that has been with us for a long time. It has reached epidemic proportions. Here is a REALITY CHECK, a glimpse at what is happening right now women and girls at the hands of ISIS. Just one more example of gendercide in action.

When you thought you had seen it all, think again. Now we have women being branded like cattle by human traffickers–with barcodes. We think this is despicable. What do you think?

[quote type=”center”] Amnesty is a prestigious organization known for its fight for the rights of political prisoners, against forced marriages, against summary executions, etc. And it is now campaigning for men’s rights to access the bodies of those more vulnerable than themselves. This is both shocking and hard to understand. [/quote]
Amnesty International, for most of us, is an organization that garners our respect as an organization that stands up for the displaced and persecuted in the world. And rightly so. Their stated objective is
“to conduct research and generate action to prevent and end grave abuses of human rights, and to demand justice for those whose rights have been violated.”
Yet according to a leaked policy document from Amnesty International, the organization in fact is committed to upholding the rights of sex trafficking clients and pimps, the very one’s who systematically and violate vulnerable women and perpetuate the sex trafficking cycle. To quote the policy paper:
“Amnesty International is opposed to the criminalization or punishment of activities related to the buying or selling of consensual sex between adults. Amnesty International believes that seeking, buying, selling and soliciting paid sex are acts protected from state interference as long as there is no coercion, threats or violence associated with those acts.”
Former US president Jimmy Carter, a big supporter of Amnesty International, wrote a letter to the organization to register his objection. (See below).
For Amnesty International to seek to uphold the “right” of johns and pimps to continue to exploit women under the guise of “consensual sex” is as unconscionable as it is absurd. Note the following facts passed on by our friends at Outside The Boxer:
- 65% to 95% of prostituted women have been sexually assaulted or raped before they entered prostitution;
- nearly half of them were victims of incest;
- the average entry age into prostitution is THIRTEEN (13). A girl aged 12 or 13 years does not have the mental and emotional resources to deal with an older man who promises to love, safety and affection.
- Over a third of runaways minors turn to prostitution to survive(called survival prostitution). And a third of runaways minors will be recruited by a pimp within 48 hours;
- Nearly all prostituted women suffer from addiction (83% use heroin, cocaine, cannabis and alcohol)
- Prostituted women suffer from psychological disorders (54% suffer from very severe depression, 42% had at least committed one suicide attempt) [/quote]
There is much more on the subject that has been well documented in the following link.:

Predators After The Storm: Trafficking Typhoon Victims
As long as there is money to be made off the vulnerable and young, the scourge of human trafficking will not not relent. Moving like a cankerous virus across the globe, these heartless slave traders of the 21st century will pounce at every chance. Their greatest window of opportunity exists after a natural or economic disaster. Human vultures are sweeping in, trafficking typhoon victims!
Trafficking Typhoon Victims In Philippines
Thousands of women and children in the Philippines are at great risk of being ensnared by human traffickers as the Philippines makes a slow recovery from last month’s catastrophic typhoon.

Spotlighting The Child Brides Epidemic
This summer millions of people have watched 11 year old Nada al-Ahdal of Yemen passionately state her case on You Tube. Her parents have arranged for her to be married, and she would have none of it. Child brides like Nada are a too common occurrence throughout the developing world.
[quote]”What about the innocence of childhood?” she implores “What have children done wrong? Why do you marry them off like that?”[/quote]
Nada is (through this video) a great voice for reason and a strong advocate for Justice For Youth! The fact is that 38,000 child brides are married around the world EACH DAY. And the number is growing.
WP On Child Brides
Here is an excellent piece from The Washington Post about the world’s forgotten population of child brides:
[button link=”http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/worldviews/wp/2013/08/01/girls-are-the-worlds-forgotten-population-nine-facts-about-child-brides/” newwindow=”yes”] Nine Facts About Child Brides[/button]
When we launched Justice For Youth over two years ago, I was eager to make up for lost time and learn everything I could about human trafficking: the statistics, the stories and the root causes. One of the very first books I read was “Half The Sky” by Nicholas Kristof and his wife Sheryl WuDunn. Together this couple traveled extensively to see for themselves the persecution and oppression that women were experiencing and to journal it. The book, named to bring attention to the assault that is taking place on half of the world’s population, is the result of their discoveries. The subjects of the book are beautiful, disarming girls, and when I read of their plight, I could connect with their pain as I could with my mother, my sister, my daughters, my wife. The stories of gendercide and abuse are heart rending. But I finished the book with a sense of hope that something can be done if we are willing to pay the price.
Gendercide is a real. (We all would do well to define gendercide as an attack on our mother.) The War On Baby Girls is real. Sex trafficking is rampant and growing globally. Half the Sky by Kristof puts a very articulate and in depth focus on the problem. The target: girls of every age. We must speak out. We must hold government officials accountable. We must pray. We must be aware of what is going on around us. Some of us must go to these places and do what we can to relieve the pain and set things right.
If you haven’t read the book “Half The Sky” and don’t feel you have the time to do so, then by all means watch the two part series of the same name which was produced last Fall. It is available on Netflix—WATCH IT! If you are not a Netflix subscriber, then purchase the DVD. We have linked it on the sidebar for your convenience.

3801 Lancaster is a documentary written and directed by David Altrogge. It became the center of discussion on Anderson Cooper 360 last Friday evening. This well produced piece looks at the Kermitt Gosnell fiasco in vivid detail, giving us glimpses into the trial, the characters, the victims and the response of people who live around the clinic–including a group of black modern day abolitionists who rise as voices in the misty darkness of this horrible ordeal.
This morning, David and his team wrote this on their blog:
Last night we took a moment of silence from discussing the Gosnell case in honor of those who died in Boston.
Today, we will resume our conversation about what happened in Philadelphia. Why? Because people have value. We must never forgot those who died, both in Boston, at the hands of a bomber, and in Philadelphia, at the hands Kermit Gosnell. If we don’t talk about what happened, we will forget. And if we forget, it will happen again.
