likely to be killed.

She may live to see her
18th birthday, if so, she
will never have a normal
life.

of women and children for
sex, you drive the demand.

of women and children

and profitable to the
suppliers
Profitibility

the growth of sexual slavery

The movie
Human Trafficking
"When I was fourteen, a man came to my parents' house in Veracruz, Mexico and asked me if I was
interested in making money in the United States. He said I could make many times as much money
doing the same things that I was doing in Mexico. At the time, I was working in a hotel cleaning
rooms and I also helped around my house by watching my brothers and sisters. He said I would be
in good hands, and would meet many other Mexican girls who had taken advantage of this great
opportunity. My parents didn't want me to go, but I persuaded them.

A week later, I was smuggled into the United States through Texas to Orlando, Florida. It was then
the men told me that my employment would consist of having sex with men for money. I had never
had sex before, and I had never imagined selling my body.

And so my nightmare began. Because I was a virgin, the men decided to initiate me by raping me
again and again, to teach me how to have sex. Over the next three months, I was taken to a different
trailer every 15 days. Every night I had to sleep in the same bed in which I had been forced to service
customers all day.

I couldn't do anything to stop it. I wasn't allowed to go outside without a guard. Many of the bosses
had guns. I was constantly afraid. One of the bosses carried me off to a hotel one night, where he
raped me. I could do nothing to stop him.

Because I was so young, I was always in demand with the customers. It was awful. Although the
men were supposed to wear condoms, some didn't, so eventually I became pregnant and was
forced to have an abortion. They sent me back to the brothel almost immediately."
