End Child Sex Slavery in America

Target: U.S. Congress
Goal: End the sexual exploitation of children by increasing penalties for the predators, not the victims.

Child sex slavery is commonly thought of as a problem that only takes place in third world countries. However, unfortunately it takes place right in the U.S. as well!

One such case included that of a 47-year-old man, Dennis Pittman, who, along with a few other men, ran a swinger’s club in Mineola, Texas, where the performers were children as young as five. The children were taught to dance provocatively and were given Vicodin-like drugs, which the adults told the kids were “silly pills”.

It is sad to think that such an act still takes place right here in America, a country that is supposed to be about freedom and opportunity. In fact, the average age girls enter into forced prostitution in the U.S. is thirteen. In addition, over half of girls living on the streets in the U.S. engage in commercial sex slavery.

Sometimes someone the child knows and trusts, such as a parent or family friend, will make it seem as if they care about her and will “promise” her a better life, but instead sells her to a pimp, where she will be forced to have sex with as many as 20 grown men in a day and will be brutally beaten and raped. What is worse is that often the child is arrested for engaging in prostitution instead of the pimp or other adult who sold them.

Approximately 150,000 children are exploited by the sex trade in America each year, while one million children are exploited internationally each year.  Sex slavery is an epidemic that desperately needs to end immediately.

These kids should be enjoying slumber parties, playing tag and hide-and-seek, and simply being kids, not being forced to endure the horrors of the sex trade.

Please sign the petition below to speak out against the terrible crime of child sex slavery in our country and to demand punishment for the predator, not the victim.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear U.S. Congress,

While the trafficking of children for sex is widely thought to happen mainly in other countries, it is occurring right here in America as well! Around 150,000 children in this country are exploited by the sex trade each year, and over half of girls living on the streets in the U.S.  engage in commercial sex slavery. The average age girls enter into forced prostitution in America is only thirteen!

Children may be sold by someone they know and trust, where they will be brutally raped and forced to have sex with as many as 20 grown men each day. Yet, often the child is arrested for engaging in prostitution instead of the pimp or adult who sold them!

These children should not have to be forced to live a life of torture and fear, only to be punished for it. I respectfully urge that you focus on the predator by adjusting laws to ensure the arrest and punishment of the pimp and/or person who sold the child instead of the victim and to ensure that the victim receives the necessary medical and emotional treatment.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Will Go Here]

  1. For first time offenderes of having sex with children, cut off their dick. There probably won’t be a second, but if there is, take them behind the school house, and put a bullet in their head. Problem solved. Yes I am a male, and you pigs are the scum of the earth.

      Very well said and to the point. And sorry, I could not sign as I’m not living in the US.

    • well said! these guys don’t change. why continue to let them loose on society? penalties should be stiff for this kind of crime! our legal system has gone soft on these guys! it’s time to put a stop to it!

  2. The predators should be thrown in jail. I am sure their are alot of men who will show them what it is to hurt a child. If these predators last an hour it will be a miracle.

  3. Child sexual alvery had always angered me so. I wanted the distored souls seeking out and playing for children for sex to be penalized as stricklt as some of trhe posters recommend. Then I read the poeple who seek such sick ways had been themselves sexually abused as children. This much disassociation from their humanness was only way they could deal with their subconscius. So, are we cutting the dicks off, guaging eyes of people who society had failed once.

    How could anyone sell a child into such a life? Some stories I read, some people sold their own kids. What kind of powerty, hunger, or misogyny could it take for so called humans to be that evil?

    The pimps must be evilest of all to turn exploitation (daily rape and battering) of children/women into a business, while it is the girls/women who get the bad rep. I don’t even have a human spin to give to pimps. Had I believed in capital punishment, they would have deserved it.
