Imagine a world where all the nine year old girls disappeared. It’s happening in Iraq right now.
[quote]It’s like witnessing a modern day holocaust, standing before cattle cars in a train station — Which of your children will you reach for, which will you grab and save — and which child do you not have arms for, which child is there not enough of you for, who you just can’t reach far enough for. All I can see are my own children’s faces. Which child, which child?[/quote]

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.

According to new United Nations report, human trafficking has expanded to 136 nationalities and 118 countries globally. Roughly 60% of all human trafficking is for sexual exploitation. Human trafficking for forced labor now comprises 38% of all trafficking, reflecting a 100% increase in just the past four years.
Sex trafficking is more common in Europe, Central Asia and the Americas, while the Middle East, while Southeast Asia, the Pacific, Africa and the Middle East are the predominant regions for labor trafficking. As a percentage of all modern day slavery, trafficking of children is up 30% in just the past few years, raising concern among UN officials. Woman and girls combined account for 75% of all human trafficking.
A big concern raised by the report is the fact that even though 134 countries now call human trafficking a crime, actual convictions are rare.
